Exciting news from Harper Voyager!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET by Becky Chambers will be available in ebook again the U.S. through Harper Voyager, on sale August 18, 2015!


You may already be familiar with Becky’s debut novel, when she self-published it after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012, or when it was nominated for Best Debut in the 2015 Kitschies, or when Hodder & Stoughton picked it up for publication in the UK. Well, U.S. fans can rejoice, as the book will be on sale again here in the U.S. in just a few short weeks! This will coincide with Hodder’s hardcover publication (out Aug. 13), so for those of you across the Pond, don’t despair.

THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET has been praised as “a joyous, optimistic space opera…that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general)” by Tor.com. This high-action space adventure follows the motley crew of the Wayfayer as they journey through the galaxy to their next job tunneling wormholes. Full of excitement, adventure, and mishaps, THE LONG WAY is impossible to put down.

Author Becky Chambers says of the forthcoming U.S. release: “Given that I’ve recently returned stateside myself, I am absolutely delighted that my book’s coming back here, too. I have more than a few books with the Harper Voyager logo on my shelf, so I’m very excited to be coming aboard. I can’t wait to start working with such an awesome team!”

Becky Chambers was raised in California as the progeny of an astrobiology educator, an aerospace engineer, and an Apollo-era rocket scientist. An inevitable space enthusiast, she made the obvious choice of studying performing arts. After a few years in theatre administration, she shifted her focus toward writing. Her creative work has appeared at The Mary Sue, Tor.com, Five Out Of Ten, The Toast, and Pornokitsch. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is her first novel, and was funded in 2012 thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. After living in Scotland and Iceland, Becky is now back in her home state, where she lives with her partner. She is an ardent proponent of video and tabletop games, and enjoys spending time in nature. She hopes to see Earth from orbit one day.
