Signed Edition

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.

When a disaster rocks this already fragile community, these 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 Becky Chambers' Wayfarer novels

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

'Joyously written and a joy to read.' - Claire North

'It's a joy to read sci-fi this big-hearted and progressive... The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet is just so much fun to read, and we can't wait to see what Chambers does next.' - SciFiNow

'The Long Way is, very simply, an extremely good book, a seemingly effortless demonstration of how progressive and enjoyable science fiction can be.' -Pornokitsch

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

Becky Chambers pulled us in with Long Way To A Small Angry Planet. We fell in love with those characters, the book was incredible. I know we all felt a pang... More

“Everyone should read this author. ”

Well it's not 'The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet' and it's not 'A Closed and Common Orbit' but it is every bit as splendid and fantastic as both of these books but in it's own... More
