Last Guy in the Airlock
Such a great book (and series).Becky Chambers: The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. While the Monk and Robot books are v nice, TLWtaSAP was initially funded by Kickstarter, and if that's not 21st century, I don't know what is..
I'd not read her when this thread started; I've since read (all?) seven books she's published. So rewarding.
