From the ground, we stand. From our ship, we live. By the stars, we hope.


The incredible new novel by Becky Chambers, author of the beloved The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.

Centuries after the last humans left Earth, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. Humanity has finally been accepted into the galactic community, but while this has opened doors for many, those who have not yet left for alien cities fear that their carefully cultivated way of life is under threat.

Tessa chose to stay home when her brother Ashby left for the stars, but has to question that decision when her position in the Fleet is threatened.

Kip, a reluctant young apprentice, itches for change but doesn't know where to find it.

Sawyer, a lost and lonely newcomer, is just looking for a place to belong.

And when a disaster rocks this already fragile community, those Exodans who still call the Fleet their home can no longer avoid the inescapable question:

What is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Record of a Spaceborn Few:

'The best speculative fiction currently being written... Becky Chambers is a wonder, and I feel better for having her books in my life.' - John Connolly, author of the Charlie Parker Thrillers 

'Richly human, believable [and] compelling... underlain with a deep compassion and a feeling for community.' - Tor.com

'Terrific... a masterly exploration of characterisation and diversity wrapped in intensity, heartbreak and tension.' - Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

'An intensely powerful and multifaceted meditation on time, history, change, and memory, leavened with a welcome touch of humor... This is a superb work from one of the genre's rising stars.' - Publishers Weekly 

'This novel was exactly what I hoped it would be and more... Moving in what feels like small personal ways but is actually big, universal ways and it is uplifting on the same scale.' - Forbidden Planet

'An emotional, moving look at what it means to be human, and the importance of heritage and legacy.' - Lauren James, author of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

Praise for The Wayfarers:

'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 quietly profound, humane tour de force.' - The Guardian

“I can't even...the brilliance...too much”

I am not sure where I should even start here. What a book.
