More Murderbot Adventures from Martha Wells

In October of last year we announced that we’d acquired two books in Martha Wells’ new Murderbot Diaries series, and the first (All Systems Red) was published last month. It has already proven extremely popular, and it’s such a fun read that when Martha’s agent contacted us to ask if we’d like any more we jumped at the chance!

Martha said:

“When I was first working on the idea for The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red, I thought it might be a short story with a very depressing ending. But as the story came together and turned into a novella, I realized Murderbot had a lot of places to go.  I’m so happy to be able to continue Murderbot’s story at, and grateful for all the readers who have enjoyed it.”

Artificial Condition, book two in the Murderbot Diaries, will be published in January 2018, and the newly-contracted Rogue Protocol and a fourth untitled book will be published later that same year.

The Murderbot Diaries books were  acquired by Publishing’s senior editor, Lee Harris, from Jennifer Jackson at the Donald Maass Literary Agency.
