Tordotcom Publishing is excited to announce Hard Reboot, a new science fiction novella from Django Wexler—publishing worldwide in paperback and ebook in spring 2021.
Kas is a junior academic on a research mission to old Earth. When a con-artist tricks her into wagering a large sum of money on the outcome of a manned robot arena battle she becomes drawn into the seedy underworld of old Earth politics and state-sponsored battle-droid prizefights.
Django said: “Tordotcom has published so many of my favorites, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with them. It’s amazing company to be in!”
Lee Harris, editor, said: “Oh, my goodness, this is so much fun! Future politics mixed with giant mecha-battles! What’s not to love?”
Hard Reboot was bought by Lee Harris from Seth Fishman of the Gernert Company and will be published worldwide in paperback and ebook in spring 2021.
