Praise for The Murderbot Diaries series "I love Murderbot!"
--Ann Leckie The Murderbot series is a heart-pounding thriller that
never lets up, but it's also one of the most humane portraits of a
nonhuman I've ever read. Come for the gunfights on other planets,
but stay for the finely drawn portrait of a deadly robot whose
smartass goodness will give you hope for the future of humanity.
--Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous We are all a little
bit Murderbot... we see ourselves in its skin. And that reading
about this sulky, soap-opera-loving cyborg killing machine might be
one of the most human experiences you can have in sci-fi right
Clever, inventive, brutal when it needs to be, and compassionate without ever being sentimental. --Kate Elliott, author of the Spirit Walker trilogy Endearing, funny, action-packed, and murderous. --Kameron Hurley, author of The Stars are Legion "Not only a fun, fast-paced space-thriller, but also a sharp, sometimes moving character study that will resonate with introverts even if they're not lethal AI machines." --Malka Older, author of Infomocracy "Wells gives depth to a rousing but basically familiar action plot by turning it into the vehicle by which SecUnit engages with its own rigorously denied humanity." --Publishers Weekly starred review "I already can't wait for the next one." --The Verge
