marthawells: (The Serpent Sea)
So, The Murderbot Diaries: Exit Strategy was reviewed in the New York Times! https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/30/books/review/martha-wells-exit-strategy.html

I came late to these novellas, and during a difficult month this year I read almost nothing else. Murderbot’s voice, a beautiful blend of exhausted cynicism and deep, helpless love, was the only thing that felt like both a match to my mood and an appropriate response to the events provoking it. Murderbot has no illusions about the way the world works and will say so blisteringly, but remains so passionately committed to the people it loves and doing what’s right that I kept welling up in response. Its angry, poignant point of view, wrapped up in sharp, short bites of space adventure, is utterly addictive, and I’m genuinely delighted — as well as a little relieved — that the series’ success has greenlit a full-length Murderbot novel, so that I don’t yet have to bid it goodbye.


And I posted some pictures of my office this morning because I was bored: https://marthawells.tumblr.com/post/180651790382/pictures-of-my-office
