Troika tells the story of men and women confronting an enigma known as the Matryoshka, a vast alien construct whose periodic appearances have generated terror, wonder, and endless debate. During its third "apparition" in a remote corner of the solar system, a trio of Russian cosmonauts approach this enigma and attempt to penetrate its mysteries. What they discover - and what they endure in the process - forms the centerpiece of an enthralling, constantly surprising narrative. Troika is at once a wholly original account of First Contact and a meditation on time, history, and the essentially fluid nature of identity itself. Suspenseful, erudite, and gracefully written, it is a significant accomplishment in its own right and a welcome addition to a remarkable body of work. -- dust jacket cover.… (mais)

This is a short Science Fiction novel (or novella or whatever it may be called) that starts with a man escaping from a mental asylum in a future Soviet Union and nearly freezing to death in the cold Russian (Soviet) winter. The man was part of a mission to investigate an alien artifact that had appeared in the solar system and now he's kept locked in.

This story just didn't hit any chords for me. I wonder if I'm immune to Alastair Reynolds? ( )

This novella is departure from the far-future grand scale stories Reynolds has become known for, instead focusing on a single life-changing encounter recounted by it’s main character, Cosmonaut Dimitri Ivanov. While I found the ending to be rewarding with its revelation into the nature of the alien artifact McGuffin, the road leading to it seemed as long and cold as the one Ivanov hitchhikes into Zvezdniy Gorodok in the opening pages. There is some interesting tension created by the looming threat from the Neo-Stalinist government in pursuit of Ivanov, but surprisingly little offered in the narrative portions set in space. There are also some very satisfying questions of identity reminiscent of Reynold’s novel “Chasm City”. ( )

A solid and enjoyable short read from one of my favorite sci-fi authors. While I read this in bite-size chunks over about a week, it would be easy enough to read this one in a single sitting and, in point of fact, I suspect it would be better that way. ( )

...The more cynical reader will probably consider this novella a bit of propaganda for space programs in general, and manned space flights in particular. It's warning us that turning our backs to space, despite the economics of its exploration, is a serious mistake. As the Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky once put it: "The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever." Whatever your opinion of the matter, it won't settle the question whether or not space exploration is worth the billions invested in it, especially since there is plenty of work still to be done on Earth.

Troika certainly provides food for thought along those lines and it does so in style. This novella is carefully crafted and works to an interesting twist in the plot at the end of the story. It's well-written and most certainly well-timed piece of writing. It's a novella that celebrates sense of wonder science fiction but also wonders if that drive to explore, through science as well as fiction, has perhaps passed. For me, Troika worked very well, both as a warning and a piece of literature. It faces some stiff competition for the Hugo but I think it would make a fine winner.
