A Waterstones Exclusive Interview with Becky Chambers

Posted on 20th July 2017 by Martha Greengrass

As we celebrate the best science fiction and fantasy writing to read this summer, we present an exclusive interview with author Becky Chambers.

Inventive, aspirational and peopled by deeply likeable characters Becky Chamber’s debut novel A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet blew a much needed breath of fresh air through the dusty halls of science fiction. As her second novel, A Closed and Common Orbit opens up her universe yet further, we caught up with the author to talk about the future for the Wayfarer’s series, her love of computer games, artificial intelligence and why she’s not afraid of the robot wars.

The first book to describe this brilliantly drawn universe, which we explore here alongside the crew of the Wayfarer – a quirky group of misfits on a mission to build a tunnel to a distant planet. Pleasingly progressive, compellingly plotted and richly characterised: this is space-opera at its most inclusive and exciting.

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body. But she's not alone, not really, she's got Pepper. Together, they will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty. An extraordinary follow-up to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.
