#RRSciFiMonth Waiting on Wednesday 11/28/18

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

The Last Astronaut by David Wellington (July 23, 2019 by Orbit)

David Wellington is an author I’ve not had the pleasure of reading before, though he has written a bunch of horror novels that have caught my eye. Next year he is coming out with a science fiction thriller, which from the looks of it will have its fair share of creepy moments as well.

“Sally Jansen was once NASA’s leading astronaut, but her final mission ended in disaster. Haunted by her failure, Jansen now lives in semi-retirement, convinced her days in space are over.
She’s wrong.
A large alien object has entered the solar system and is now poised above the Earth. It has made no attempt at communication and has ignored all incoming transmissions.
At NASA’s request, Jansen must lead an expedition to the object in the hope of discovering its purpose. For all the dangers of the mission, it’s the one shot at redemption she always hoped for.
Yet when K-Space, a powerful corporation, launches its own rival mission intent on claiming ownership of the object and whatever lies within, what began as a mission to make First Contact becomes a desperate race against time.
As the object reveals its many mysteries, one thing becomes clear–the future of humanity lies in the hands of Sally Jansen. The last astronaut.”
