Redemption Ark - Alistair Reynolds

I had no intention of reading another one of these, but there it was, just kicking about the office, and I eventually couldn't resist. Another doorstep of a book, it extends the story of Revelation Space, filling in a number of details. For the most part, though, it does more bleak sci-fi. If Banks wrote books twice as long with much harder science, this would pretty much be it.
