A Psalm for the Wild-Built

By Becky Chambers
A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Winner of the Hugo Award!

In A Psalm for the Wild-Built, bestselling Becky Chambers's delightful new Monk and Robot series, gives us hope for the future.


It's been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend.

One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honor the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of "what do people need?" is answered.

But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how.

They're going to need to ask it a lot.

Becky Chambers's new series asks: in a world where people have what they want, does having more matter?

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I absolutely adored this book, I plan to do a re-read soon to see if I spot anything at the start that I missed. I thought the story was very thought- provoking especially after the first few chapters and after we meet Mosscap.”

Thinking Face“I was not expecting the book to be a cozy read but I enjoyed some exchanges amongst Dex and Mosscap but yes, i was looking for a science fiction novel and this was not it. Nevertheless, a short lovely oxcart ride!”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Unread shelf project 2024: book 44. This was such a good book. I don’t even know how to summarize it but this may well be in the running for the best book that I’ve read in 2024. I may or may not have teared up at the end. If you haven’t read it, go get yourself a copy. Such a heartwarming and thought provoking gentle read.”
