Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells

Jason's Deli

“No, I didn't kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn't dump the body in the station mall.”

When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people―who knew?)

Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!

Available at the ABQ Public Library in Print, eBook and eAudio formats.

NOTE: If you have not ready any of the previous books in the Murderbot series, you might want to read them first. There are 4 short novellas and one novel before this book.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

Online event

A lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this cinematic thriller full of suspense, humor, and fascinating science—in development as a major motion picture starring Ryan Gosling.

Available at the ABQ Public Library in Print and eBook. (Both have a long hold list so get on the hold list now).

Light From Uncommon Stars by Aoki Ryka

Needs a location

Good Omens meets The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet in a defiantly joyful adventure set in California's San Gabriel Valley, with cursed violins, Faustian bargains, and queer alien courtship over fresh-made donuts.

Available at the ABQ Public Library in Print, eBook and eAudiobook formats.

Hell Divers (Hell Divers Series, Book 1) by Nicholas Sansbury Smith

Needs a location

More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to earth long ago. The only thing keeping the two surviving lifeboats in the sky are Hell Divers -- men and women who risk their lives by skydiving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.

When one of the remaining airships is damaged in an electrical storm, a Hell Diver team is deployed to a hostile zone called Hades. But there is something down there far worse than the mutated creatures discovered on dives in the past -- something that threatens the fragile future of humanity.
