The acclaimed modern science fiction masterpiece, Hugo Award winner for Best Series!

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space--and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe--in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.

Rosemary Harper doesn't expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she's never met anyone remotely like the ship's diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.

Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy--exactly what Rosemary wants. It's also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn't part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary's got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs--an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn't necessarily the worst thing in the universe.

Review:

"Great fun!"--Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice

"A quietly profound, humane tour de force that tackles politics and gender issues with refreshing optimism."--The Guardian

"One of the most enjoyable, brilliantly realized spacey SF novels I've read in ages."--James Smythe, author of The Echo and The Explorer

"Humane and alien, adventurous and thoughtful, vast in its imagination and wonderfully personal in the characters it builds. But above all else, it is joyously written and a joy to read."--Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"[A] wonderfully imaginative and quirky novel [...] It is hard to believe that this is Becky Chambers' first novel, as it is so well constructed, imaginative, and fluently written."--Strange Horizons

"Becky Chambers' debut is 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

"There are so many amazing things about this book which I have tried to cover in my review, but to sum it up in one word I found this book to be: Perfect!"--Fantasy Book Review (Book of the Month; 10 out of 10)

Book Description:

The astonishing self-published debut novel that Tor.com says 'will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general).'
