Waiting on Wednesday 09/25/19
“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!
Network Effect by Martha Wells (May 5, 2020 by Tor.com)
I make it no secret I’m a huge fan of the novella series The Murderbot Diaries and I have been looking forward to the full-length novel ever since it was announced. I just love how the quirky publisher summary is 100% Murderbot! Let the countdown begin!
“I’m usually alone in my head, and that’s where 90 plus percent of my problems are.
It calls itself Murderbot, but only when no-one can hear. It’s a private joke. Funny.
It doesn’t care, it tells itself, and its attachment to the humans around it is merely professional obligation.
It tries to never drop the F-bomb.
So, when its human associates (not friends, never friends) are captured and another not-friend from its past requires urgent assistance, Murderbot must choose between inertia and drastic action.
Drastic action it is, then.
I really should read something by Martha Wells! I’ve only heard great things!
You should! I’ve always thought she was underrated, but thanks to Murderbot she’s finally getting lots of attention 😀

MurderBot has definitely taken the SF world by storm.
At least you won’t have to pick this up in 4 small installments 😉
She definitely seems to have found her niche in sci-fi!
