Whether you’ve been along for the whole journey or jumped on at the last spaceport, we have an exciting announcement for all Wayfarers fans. No, we haven’t perfected our time travel machine (I promise we’ll let you know when we do), but the news is even more exciting than that: Becky Chambers is coming back to tour the UK to celebrate the release of Record of a Spaceborn Few.
Becky Chambers’ UK tour will have stops all over the country, including London, Glasgow, Oxford, Norwich and Sheffield, culminating in an appearance at the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC), part of the London Film and Comic Con. Becky will be talking about her work and taking questions from the audience, as well as signing books.
The details on locations are below – we can’t wait to see you there!

From the ground, we stand. From our ship, we live. By the stars, we hope.
Centuries after the last humans left Earth, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, a place many are from but few outsiders have seen. Humanity has finally been accepted into the galactic community, but while this has opened doors for many, those who have not yet left for alien cities fear that their carefully cultivated way of life is under threat.
Tessa chose to stay home when her brother Ashby left for the stars, but has to question that decision when her position in the Fleet is threatened.
Kip, a reluctant young apprentice, itches for change but doesn’t know where to find it.
Sawyer, a lost and lonely newcomer, is just looking for a place to belong.
When a disaster rocks this already fragile community, those Exodans who still call the Fleet their home can no longer avoid the inescapable question:
What is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination?
