Après avoir visité les zones rurales de Panga, Sibling Dex (un moine du thé d’une certaine renommée) et Mosscap (un robot envoyé dans une quête pour déterminer ce dont l’humanité a vraiment besoin) tournent leur attention vers les villages et les villes de la petite lune qu’ils appellent leur maison.

Ils espèrent trouver les réponses qu’ils cherchent, tout en se faisant de nouveaux amis, en apprenant de nouveaux concepts et en faisant l’expérience de la nature entropique de l’univers.

La nouvelle série de Becky Chambers continue de poser la question suivante : dans un monde où les gens ont tout ce qu’ils veulent, est-ce que le fait d’avoir plus est important ?

I hope you’ll try it.” —Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
