A Murderbot Novella
The Murderbot Diaries #6
The Murderbot Diaries began as an award-winning novella in 2017 and has become so much more. Having read all of the previous novellas and the full-length novel, I’ve been eagerly awaiting this novella, Fugitive Telemetry. I can’t get enough of Murderbot and its banter. It always feels so real, so visceral and imperfect. Muderbot is not an anti-hero, but it’s not the typical main character, either, and I love that. It is deeply flawed and blatantly honest in its own thoughts, and has a wry sense of humor that matches my own.
Fugitive Telemetry, like all the stories in the Murderbot Diaries, is unique, well-written, and engaging. It brings back characters we know and love, while bringing in new conflicts and mysteries to solve. I hope to see more of Murderbot in the future. Until then, I’ve pre-ordered my copy of the audiobook via Audible so I can listen to the entire series over and over again. The narrator, Kevin R. Free, is fantastic.
This is a 176 page novella, part of Tor.com‘s novella line.
