Product description


Becky Chambers takes space opera in a whole new and unexpected direction, her books bring me so much joy - Ben Aaronovitch, author of Rivers of London

Epic in the scale of discoveries but with a miniaturist's eye for detail, and as revealing of the observers as the observed. In a word, brilliant - Andrew Caldecott, author of Rotherweird

Rendered with startling clarity, Chambers' latest offering is a short but fierce ode to humanity and all our reaches and flaws. Unputdownable - Natasha Ngan, author of Girls of Paper and Fire

Extraordinary . . . A future sci-fi masterwork in a new and welcome tradition - Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

Outstanding . . . Chambers packs an immense amount of story into a novella worthy of full-length praise - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Book Description

In her new novella, Sunday Times bestselling author Becky Chambers imagines a future in which, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the solar system instead transform themselves.
