The Edge of Worlds by Martha Wells (trade paperback)

Item Name and Description: One copy of The Edge of Worlds by Martha Wells, in trade paperback, published by Night Shade Books. This is the second to last book in the Books of the Raksura series.

An expedition of groundlings from the Empire of Kish have traveled through the Three Worlds to the Indigo Cloud court of the Raksura, shape-shifting creatures of flight that live in large family groups. The groundlings have found a sealed ancient city at the edge of the shallow seas, near the deeps of the impassable Ocean. They believe it to be the last home of their ancestors and ask for help getting inside. But the Raksura fear it was built by their own distant ancestors, the Forerunners, and the last sealed Forerunner city they encountered was a prison for an unstoppable evil.

All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells (signed paperback)

Item Name and Description: One signed copy of the paperback 150 page novella All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells, published by Tor.com.

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.

Complete (so far) Raksura Set

Item Name & Description: Signed copies of all four current Books of the Raksura in trade paperback: The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, The Siren Depths, Stories of the Raksura Vol I: The Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud and Stories of the Raksura Vol II: The Dead City & The Dark Earth Below

Descriptions, reviews, and sample chapters are available at www.raksura.com

Reviews:

“Wells is adept at suggesting a long, complex history for her world with economy, and, while her protagonists may not be human as we understand it, they are definitely people, sympathetic figures constrained but not defeated by their environments. Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells’s deft touch with characterization and the fantastic.”
– Publishers Weekly

Truly inventive and stunningly imaginative world building perfectly melded with vivid, engaging characters make the Books of the Raksura one of my all-time favorite science-fiction series.
– Kate Elliott

The Cloud Roads has wildly original worldbuilding, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It’s that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn’t go where ten thousand others have gone before. I can’t wait for my next chance to visit the Three Worlds!
– N.K. Jemisin

Starting Bid: $20

Notes: I’ll personalize the signature for the winning bidder, and I will ship internationally. I may not have author copies of Stories of the Raksura vol II by the time the auction ends, but will have them by June, so shipping may be a little delayed.
