Becky Chambers introduces her jubilant debut novel

The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet publishes in hardback on August 13th and we couldn’t be more excited for you all to read it. Obviously we love it, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s some of the incredible praise Becky Chambers has received already:

‘A joyous, optimistic space opera… Although it isn’t shy about tackling Big Questions, Planet is a heart-warming debut novel that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general)’ – Tor.com

‘A huge amount of space-opera-y fun, with some interestingly nuanced perspectives on gender woven into the whole’ – Adam Roberts, author of Jack Glass

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is humane and alien, adventurous and thoughtful, vast in its imagination and wonderfully personal in the characters it builds.  But above all else, it joyously written and a joy to read’ – Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

‘Very simply, an extremely good book, a seemingly effortless demonstration of how progressive and enjoyable science fiction can be’ – Pornokitsch
