Summary from C.J. Cherryh's Fiction
Gehenna is the second closest planet to Zeta1 Reticuli, which is more easily referenced in current star catalogues as HR 1006 or Gl 136. Located almost 40 light-years (ly) away in Constellation Reticulum, this star has distant stellar companion (Zeta2 Reticuli), currently separated by over 9,000 times the Earth-Sun distance ("astronomical unit" or AU). While Zeta1 Reticuli is a main-sequence, yellow-orange dwarf star (G2.5-5 V) like Sol, it may be older at as much as eight billion years or more and is only 60 percent as enriched in elements heavier than hydrogen.
