Mac's Backs Sci Fi Book Club discusses the Murderbot Series 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'"

Breathtakingly surprising and fun. For readers who missed earlier entry points to this delightful series, now is the time to get on board. -- The New York Times on The Edge of Worlds

That rarity--a completely unique and stunning fantasy world. --Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear on The Edge of Worlds

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
