    I disagree with the reviewers who said this was just the first two or three chapters of The Children of the Sky (CotS). There was definitely additional information on the Tycoon's henchmen, and early contact with the Tropics. I think this could have been read before CotS.

    It is just the first couple chapters of The Children of the Sky. I paid for an excerpt from a book that I bought anyways. Just buy the book itself.

    Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass es nur ein kurzer Prolog zu einem anderen Buch ist, aber ich fand es wenig enttäuschend. Die Szenen waren nicht wirklich ausgearbeitet und die Verbindung zwischen ihnen fehlte. Es gibt auch nicht wirklich ein verünftiges Ende, das Ganze hängt irgendwie in der Luft, und der Zusammenhang mit Children of the Sky ist auch nur lose erkennbar. Dies hat Vernor Vinge wohl mehr als eine Art Pflichtübung gesehen.

    Not sure how I ended up with this on my Kindle. I think I've heard that I should read Vernor Vinge and saw this for sale on BookBub or something. But it was unsatisfying because it's just a couple chapters of a book, and I think it's meant to be between Book 1 and Book 2 in a series, so I didn't really understand what was going on. But I could see that I might like reading Book 1 based on this little tease.

    A little slow to start as Vinge had to set up all the plot lines he wanted to add. The rest was of the book was fast paced and fun. By the end he had more material to work with for the next few books than I've seen previously. However, those next few books are probably not coming. :/

    After the Battle on Starship Hill Interesting and thought provoking. This short revisitation to the world of the Tines is imaginative world building at its finest.

    Do not buy this excellent book. All the material is included in the full novel. It is not a prelude, it's a preview, and no longer relevant except to collectors.

    I haven't read any of the Children of the Sky, but enjoyed this short novella.

    I probably should have read The Children of the Sky first. It seemed to be incomplete. There were too many loose ends.

    Not a real highlight but the story made me want to read "A fire on the deepness" again.

    This "book" is just the first couple of chapters of "Children of the Sky". Skip this and read "Children of the Sky" instead.

    Very satisfying sequel of epic duration.

    Prequel to The Children of the Sky. Actually the first three chapters of The Children of the Sky.
