Murderbot Will Return in…Network Effect. A Full Novel by Martha Wells.

Martha Wells’ Murderbot Diaries series of novellas has caught the world by storm! Not only is it a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, not only has it won a Hugo, a Nebula (and currently nominated for another!), an Alex Award and Locus Award, and been nominated for a Philip K Dick Award, RT Reviewers’ Choice Award and a British Science Fiction Award, its story of a self-aware security bot has touched many and when we announced we’d commissioned Martha to write a full length Murderbot novel, you could hear the fans squee across continents!

And now, as the writing of the novel enters the final stages, Martha has told us what the novel will be called, so we thought we’d share it with you.

In May 2020, prepare yourself for The Murderbot Diaries: Network Effect.

And yes, we know that a whole year (plus change) is a long time to wait, so keep your eyes peeled for more great Murderbot news, soon!


The first four Murderbot Diaries novellas are available now:
