The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Author: Becky Chambers Format: Paperback Release Date: 31/12/2015

The crew of the Wayfarer 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 on board 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 on board with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.

Der lange Weg zu einem kleinen zornigen Planeten

Author: Becky Chambers Format: eBook Release Date: 27/10/2016

Willkommen an Bord der Wayfarer!Becky Chambers hat mit Der lange Weg zu einem kleinen zornigen Planeten eine zutiefst optimistische Space Opera geschrieben, die uns den Glauben an die Science Fiction (im Besonderen) und an die Menschheit (im Allgemeinen) zuruckgibt.Als die junge Marsianerin Rosemary Harper auf der Wayfarer anheuert, wird sie von auerst gemischten Gefuhlen heimgesucht - der ramponierte Raumkreuzer hat schon bessere Zeiten gesehen, und der Job scheint reine Routine: Wurmlocher durchs Weltall zu bohren, um Verbindungswege zwischen weit entfernten Galaxien anzulegen, ist auf den ersten Blick alles andere als glamouros. Die Crewmitglieder, mit denen sie nun auf engstem Raum zusammenlebt, gehoren den unterschiedlichsten galaktischen Spezies an. Da gibt es die Pilotin Sissix, ein freundliches und polyamoroses reptilienahnliches Wesen, den Mechaniker Jenks, der in die KI des Raumschiffs verliebt ist, und den weisen und gutigen Dr. Chef, der einer aussterbenden Spezies angehort. Doch dann nimmt Kapitan Ashby den ebenso profitablen wie riskanten Auftrag an, einen Raumtunnel zu einem weit entfernten Planeten anzulegen, auf dem die kriegerische Rasse der Toremi lebt. Fur Rosemary verwandelt sich die Flucht vor der eigenen Vergangenheit in das grote Abenteuer ihres Lebens.Der lange Weg zu einem kleinen zornigen Planeten wurde fur zahlreiche Preise nominiert, u.a. fur den Kitschies Award, den Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction und den Arthur C. Clarke Award.
