Description

FromNew York Times bestselling author Steven Erikson comesWillful Child: Wrath of Betty, a new Science Fiction novel of devil-may-care, near calamitous, and downright chaotic adventures through the infinite vastness of interstellar space.
These are the voyages of the starship A.S.F.Willful Child. Its ongoing mission: to seek out strange new worlds on which to plant the Terran flag, to subjugate and if necessary obliterate new life-forms, to boldly blow the...
And so we join the not-terribly-bright but exceedingly cock-sure Captain Hadrian Sawback and his motley crew on board the StarshipWillful Child.
TheNew York Timesbestselling author of the acclaimed Malazan Book of the Fallen series has taken his lifelong passion forStar Trek and transformed it into a smart, inventive, and hugely entertaining spoof on the whole mankind-exploring-space-for-the-good-of-all-species-but-trashing-stuff-with-a-lot-of-high-tech-gadgets-along-the-way, overblown adventure. The result is an Science Fiction novel that deftly parodies the genre while also paying fond homage to it.

Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues "Cleverly written and brilliantly funny with a charming, handsome-and self-absorbed-hero at the center of the story… . With an imaginative plot, plenty of action and a lively pace, Willful Child and Erikson do not disappoint." - RT Book Reviews
