Beschreibung

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2016.
Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, 2016.
Firefly meets Mass Effect in this thrilling self-published debut!
When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past.
But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptillian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life onboard is chaotic but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants.
Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They'll earn enough money to live comfortably for years...if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful. But Rosemary isn't the only person onboard with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.

"One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realised spacey SF novels I've read in ages." (James Smythe, author of The Echo)

A long journey

Mit "The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet" habe ich mich etwas schwer getan. Die Geschichte fängt sehr gut und spannend an. Sie hat mich ein wenig an "Raumschiff Voyager" erinnert. Jedoch gab es auch einige Längen, weshalb sich die Geschichte zum Ende für mich sehr gezogen hat.

Trotzdem würde ich "The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet" weiterempfehlen. Es ist kein Meisterwerk, aber die Geschichte baut eine ganz eigene Welt auf, die Stück für Stück interessanter wird.

Nice, average SF story

I kind of liked this story although it was nothing special, just your everyday space adventure.
What really irks me in this kind of story is the casual validation of racism whenever something about "you humans" or other species is being said, and it always makes me cringe a bit.
Otherwise fine and quite harmless.
