The Relentless Moon

THE THIRD IN THE HUGO, NEBULA AND LOCUS AWARD-WINNING SERIES

Two worlds. One humanity.

It’s 1963, and riots and sabotage plague the space program. The climate change caused by the Meteor is becoming more and more clear, but tensions are rising, and the IAC’s goal of getting humanity off Earth is threatened.

Astronaut Nicole Wargin lives two lives; one as a politican’s smiling wife on Earth, and the other as an astronaut on the newly-established Moon Base. But when sabotage strikes, she finds that her two worlds are colliding – with deadly consequences.

‘The Lady Astronaut series might be set in an alternate past, but they’re cutting-edge SF novels that speak volumes about the present.’ ―The Verge

‘Kowal masters both science and historical accuracy in this alternate history adventure.’ – Andy Weir

“In The Calculating Stars, Mary Robinette Kowal imagines an alternate history of spaceflight that reminds me of everything I loved about Hidden Figures.” ― Cady Coleman, Astronaut

“This is what NASA never had, a heroine with attitude.”―The Wall Street Journal
