Hi, I'm Becky Chambers, author of the Wayfarers series and other books, too. Ask me anything!
Hello, r/books ! Very happy to be back in your fine company. I'm Becky Chambers, and I'm the author of the Wayfarers series, as well as other sci-fi books. I have two new things coming out this year. The first isThe Galaxy, and the Ground Within, the fourth (and final) Wayfarers novel, which is out RIGHT NOW. It's by far the most alien of the bunch, so I hope you like claws and exoskeletons. I'll also have a new novella out this summer. It's calledA Psalm for the Wild-Built, and it's set in a solarpunk secondary world. There's a robot in it that I'm quite fond of. You can find out more about me and my work on my website, otherscribbles.com . I live in the very very north of California, I love video games and TTRPGs and bugs, and I'm a huge fan of naps. I'll be around for a couple hours this morning (I'm on Pacific Time, obvs), and will swing back later this afternoon or evening to answer as many leftovers as I can. Ask me any ol' thing.

Edit (4 pm PT): All right, I'm back. I'll get through as many of the leftovers as I can! Edit (5:30 pm PT): Okay, that's it for me. Thank you so much for all the wonderful questions, and for providing such a great place to hang out. Ad astra!
