Read by Adjoa Andoh

  • Downloadable audio file
  • £P.O.R.

The hotly anticipated sequel to the science fiction debut that everybody's talking about. Ancillary Justice was widely compared to Iain M. Banks and Ursula Le Guin, was the winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the British Science Fiction Association Award, a James Tiptree Honour and the Kitschies' Golden Tentacle, and is currently shortlisted for the Hugo Awards, the Philip K. Dick Award and the Nebula Award.

JUSTICE FOR ALL

Breq - the soldier who used to be a spaceship - is serving the emperor she swore to destroy. She's been given her own warship, her own crew and ordered to the only place in the galaxy she would have agreed to go: to Athoek Station, to protect the family of the lieutenant she murdered in cold blood.

Athoek was annexed by the Empire some six hundred years ago, and by now everyone is fully 'civilised'. Or should be - but everything is not as tranquil as it appears. Old divisions are still troublesome, Athoek Station's AI is restless and it looks like the alien Presger might have taken an interest in what's going on. With no guarantees that their interest is benevolent.

The Tourist

THE FUTURE HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. It's expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, try their food. A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide additional interest - but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble. Until he notices that one of his party is missing. Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing. Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world. With breathtaking plot twists that ricochet through time, The Tourist is the most original conspiracy thriller you will read this year.
