Product description

Review

"With technical prowess and outstanding visceral imagery, Chambers [...] packs an immense amount of story into a novella worthy of full-length praise."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

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

"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

"Some of the most forward-thinking, inspiring science fiction out there . . . a joyful antidote to crushed spirits and a celebration of the power of curiosity, love, adventure and discovery."

--Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"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

"An exquisite expression of our moment in time. Here's why we need to keep going boldly into space - not to exploit, but to learn. Impressive and essential." --Stephen Baxter, author of Promixa

"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

"An extraordinary picture of humanity among the stars."--Kirkus Reviews

"Becky Chambers is a master of delivering sadness and devastation right alongside a true and genuine love for humanity, and that is something that illuminates everything she's written."--Black Forest Basilisks
