Hugo, Locus, and Nebula-Award winner Mary Robinette Kowal blends her no-nonsense approach to life in space with her talent for creating glittering high-society in this stylish SF mystery, The Spare Man.

Tesla Crane, one of the richest women in the world, is on her honeymoon on an interplanetary space liner, cruising between Earth and Mars. She’s traveling incognito and is reveling in her anonymity. Then someone is murdered and her husband is named as the prime suspect. To save him from the frame-up, Tesla will risk exposure and face demons from her past.

Even though doing so might make her the next victim.

In The News

Praise for The Calculating Stars:

The Calculating Stars is a wonderful, scientifically accurate view of what might have been. Kowal masters both science and historical accuracy in this alternate history adventure.”—Andy Weir, author of The Martian

“This is what NASA never had, a heroine with attitude.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Readers will thrill to the story of this ‘lady astronaut’ and eagerly anticipate the promised sequels.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Kowal’s book was revelatory for me, because here is a version of history where men eventually, finally, listen to women.”—Tor.com

“A fine balance of integrating historical accuracy—including mid-twentieth-century sexism, racism, and technology—with speculative storytelling.”—Booklist

“Readers will be hooked.”—Library Journal

Praise for the Lady Astronaut series:

“These are really outstanding books. They strongly remind me of James A. Michener's Space in style and substance. Fiction tightly intertwined with real history. It feels like Kowal is giving life to the stories of those you actually knew from history books.”—Jim Wright, Stonekettle Station
