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.
