Can’t Wait Wednesday - Walking to Aldebaran by Adrian Tchaikovsky

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

Chilling story of a lost astronaut on an alien artefact from Arthur C. Clarke award-winning Adrian Tchaikovsky

My name is Gary Rendell. I’m an astronaut. When they asked me as a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said, “astronaut, please!” I dreamed astronaut, I worked astronaut, I studied astronaut.

I got lucky; when a probe sent out to explore the Oort Cloud found a strange alien rock and an international team of scientists was put together to go and look at it, I made the draw.

I got even luckier. When disaster hit and our team was split up, scattered through the endless cold tunnels, I somehow survived.

Now I’m lost, and alone, and scared, and there’s something horrible in here.

Lucky me.

Lucky, lucky, lucky.

Lucky, lucky, lucky me . . . I already have an ARC of this, and I'm ready to get lost in the story.


  1. I've been meaning to read something by Adrian Tchaikovsky for ages. I saw him talk on a panel last year and he seemed really cool. This one sounds great, I hope you enjoy it!😊
    My Can't Wait Wednesday this week.

  2. Sounds like it could be a good sci-fi story! You can check out my post at Lisa Loves Literature.

  3. This was a recent discovery for me, Tchaikovsky seems to be pumping out the books faster than I can keep up.
