I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Cover of The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.

This was absolutely lovely scifi that reminded me a lot of Firefly in terms of down-to-earth real ship operations with a lovely, relatable crew and a gritty/real feeling universe. Seeing the crew of the Wayfarer coming together, in all their alien differences, and following them on their way to a difficult job, and seeing their hardship and friendship, was touching and a wonderful help against the autumn gloom.

Slice of life, though, so nothing big happens, and conflict is mostly avoided โ€“ it’s different, compared to most sci-fi, but in the right mood, it works.
