Record of a Spaceborn Few

Wayfarers 3

'The best speculative fiction currently being written' John Connolly.

*THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER*

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.

#SpacebornFew

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?

PRAISE

'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 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.

'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.

When our home planet became unable to sustain humanity any longer, humans fled aboard big ships, the homesteaders, and formed the exodan fleet. They drifted centuries. Eventually to be found. Through a multitude of amazing characters, that couldn’t be any different, the reader gets to know life aboard the homesteaders and the hopes and dreams of their inhabitants. Each character is presented with a struggle that they need to overcome in order for them to find their place in life or achieve a, for them, very important goal. Becky Chambers is one SciFi‘s best author to emerge in recent years. Through her amazing writing style, that doesn’t rely on tense situations, she is able to captivate the readers attention throughout the whole book. There is no bad guy that needs defeating or a big quest to save the galaxy. Just people living their live, eventually having to make a decision. This book wants to be nothing more than a simple human tale in a vast galaxy.
