Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Calculating Stars

“In The Calculating Stars, Mary Robinette Kowal imagines an alternate history of spaceflight that reminds me of everything I loved about Hidden Figures.”―Cady Coleman, Astronaut

“Readers will thrill to the story of this “lady astronaut” and eagerly anticipate the promised sequels.”―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“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

“An engrossing alternate history with a unique point of view, The Fated Sky dramatically demonstrates the technical problems with going to Mars―but the technical problems are the not the only ones. Never backing down from vital issues of race and gender, The Fated Sky confronts the human issues of space travel in a United States made increasingly desperate by a massive meteor strike. Plausible, convincing, and ultimately moving.”―Nancy Kress, author of the Hugo Award-winning "Yesterday's Kin"
