MAC'S BACKS SCI FI BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES ALL SYSTEMS RED

Mac's Backs Sci Fi Book Club discusses  All Systems Red by Martha Wells.

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.'

MARTHA WELLS has written many fantasy novels, including The Wizard HuntersWheel of the Infinite, the Books of the Raksura series (beginning with The Cloud Roads and ending with The Harbors of the Sun), and the Nebula-nominated The Death of the Necromancer, as well as YA fantasy novels, short stories, and non-fiction.

"The Murderbot series is a heart-pounding thriller that never lets up, but it's also one of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I've ever read. Come for the gunfights on other planets, but stay for the finely drawn portrait of a deadly robot whose smartass goodness will give you hope for the future of humanity." --Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous

"Clever, inventive, brutal when it needs to be, and compassionate without ever being sentimental." --Kate Elliott, author of the Spirit Walker trilogy
