Announcing "The Vela," a brand new adventure

I've been to four different conventions this year in various corners of the globe, and at every single one of them, somebody I didn't know has said, "is it true that you're writing a serial fiction thing?" or "I heard you're working with Yoon Ha Lee on something" or "you're doing a project with Serial Box, right?"

“Ninety percent of all problems are caused by people being assholes.”
“What causes the other ten percent?” asked Kizzy.
“Natural disasters,” said Nib.”
Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

“All you can do, Rosemary – all any of us can do – is work to be something positive instead. That is a choice that every sapient must make every day of their life. The universe is what we make of it. It’s up to you to decide what part you will play.”
Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

“The truth is, Rosemary, that you are capable of anything. Good or bad. You always have been, and you always will be. Given the right push, you, too, could do horrible things.

And I bet most of them — not all, but most — who made it through the war spent a long time after trying to understand what they’d done. Wondering how they ever could have done it in the first place. Wondering when killing became so comfortable.”
Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
