To Be Taught, If Fortunate

by Becky Chambers
Release date: August 2019
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

A novella.

Imagine a future in which, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the solar system instead transform themselves.

*FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR*

Adriane is one such explorer. As an astronaut on an extrasolar research vessel, she and her fellow crewmates sleep between worlds, and wake up each time with different features. Her experience is one of fluid body and stable mind, and of a unique perspective on the passage of time. Back on Earth, society changes dramatically from decade to decade, as it always does. Ariadne may awaken to find that support for space exploration back home has waned, or that her country of birth no longer exists, or that a cult has arisen around their cosmic findings, only to dissolve once more by the next waking. But the moods of Earth have little bearing on their mission: to explore, to study, and to send their learnings home.

Carrying all the trademarks of her other beloved works, including brilliant writing, fantastic world-building and exceptional, diverse characters, Becky's first book outside of the Wayfarers series is sure to capture the imagination of readers all over the world.
