Overview

A murderous android discovers itself in All Systems Red, a tense science fiction adventure by Martha Wells for fans of AI morality plays

In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.

On a distant planet, a team of scientists are conducting surface tests, shadowed by their Company-supplied ‘droid — a self-aware SecUnit that has hacked its own governor module, and refers to itself (though never out loud) as “Murderbot.” Scornful of humans, all it really wants is to be left alone long enough to figure out who it is.

But when a neighboring mission goes dark, it's up to the scientists and their Murderbot to get to the truth.

PRAISE FOR MARTHA WELLS

“Martha Wells writes fantasy the way it was meant to be—poignant, evocative, and astonishing. Prepare to be captivated 'til the sun comes up.” —Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and God's War

Jemisin, author of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

"Breathtakingly surprising and fun. For readers who missed earlier entry points to this delightful series, now is the time to get on board." —The New York Times on The Edge of Worlds
