Not too spoilery review of the next two stories in The Muderbot Diaries here:

Wells brings a strong sense of character to Murderbot. Deeply socially anxious, immensely awkward about talking to Actual People, and constantly insisting that they don’t care (when it becomes obvious that they do), Murderbot is a very human sort of bot—despite their occasionally assertion that they’re not really a person.

Wells' pacing is sharp, and the world of the Murderbot Diaries is atmospheric and filled with cool shit. And the individuals who appear on the pages of these stories, however briefly, all feel like fully-rounded people. These are delightful books, and I sincerely hope that Wells writes many more of them—because I definitely want to find out what happens next.



And if you're nominating for the Hugo Awards, All Systems Red is eligible in the novella category, and the Books of the Raksura series is eligible in the series category because The Harbors of the Sun came out last year. Though this will be its last year of eligibility.
