If there’s one thing that people like more than stories about robots, it’s stories about robots trying to beat the hell out of each other. We’re thrilled to share the cover for Django Wexler’s Hard Reboot, a science fiction adventure arriving from Tordotcom Publishing on May 25th.
Did we mention the robots are huge? Because they are!
Giant mech arena battles and intergalactic diplomacy. When did academia get to be so complicated?
Kas is a junior academic on a research mission to old Earth. When a con-artist tricks her into wagering a huge sum of money she doesn’t have 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.
Is it time to get back to the books, yet?
