The third in the Hugo, Nebula and Locus award-winning series

The Earth is growing ever hotter, as governments clash and riots and sabotage plague the space program. The IAC’s goal of getting as many people as possible off Earth before it becomes uninhabitable is under threat. 

The Moon colony is still being established, but Elma York is already on her way to Mars. Her friend and fellow Lady Astronaut Nicole Wargin is thrilled to be on the pioneering mission — but less happy that her husband, the Governor of Kansas, is considering a run for President.

The Relentless Moon UK cover reveal and excerpt

We are delighted to share the stunning cover art for the UK edition of The Relentless Moon, from Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal, which was revealed on SciFiNow.

Read a short excerpt with our friends at SciFiNow.

 

Mary Robinette Kowal continues her Hugo and Nebula award-winning Lady Astronaut series, following The Calculating Stars and The Fated Sky, with The Relentless Moon.

The Earth is coming to the boiling point as the climate disaster of the Meteor strike becomes more and more clear, but the political situation is already overheated. Riots and sabotage plague the space program. The IAC’s goal of getting as many people as possible off Earth before it becomes uninhabitable is being threatened. 

Elma York is on her way to Mars, but the Moon colony is still being established. Her friend and fellow Lady Astronaut Nicole Wargin is thrilled to be one of those pioneer settlers, using her considerable flight and political skills to keep the program on track. But she is less happy that her husband, the Governor of Kansas, is considering a run for President.

The Relentless Moon is out from Solaris for UK/BC readers in eBook 20 July and paperback 26 November – pre-order now.

The Calculating Stars is a wonderful, scientifically accurate view of what might have been. Kowal masters both science and historical accuracy in this alternate history adventure.”  
Andy Weir

“Hugely satisfying, as the women of the early space programme, in crucial roles but out of sight, at last take the spotlight they deserve… even if,  in Kowal’s thoughtful alternate history, it takes the end of the world to bring it about.” 
Stephen Baxter
