    Murderbot prequel short story! 3.5 stars. It's free online here at Wired magazine. Review posted on Fantasy Literature: I hugely enjoyed reading the four MURDERBOT DIARIES novellas last year, so when I found that Martha Wells had published a prequel short story online in December, I...

    Feels unpolished for a Wells story. https://www.wired.com/story/future-of... ...

    They call this an article, it's more like a fragment of a scene. It's Well's Murderbhot. It's all welcome till the new book arrives. ...

    This is just a SCENE. What a tease. I want more MurderBot. ...

    NEVER GETTING TIRED OF READING ABOUT MURDERBOT. ...

    There's nothing wrong with this story, except it's too short. As a prequel to the terrific Murderbot series, Wells gives us such a tiny taste here in this really short story that I kept looking for more once I came to its end. Considering the importance of this serial to Murderbot's ...

    Waaaaaaaay to short. But a nice snipet into Murderbot's previous job, although it's much the same, save stupid humans :) Still it's tu short and it comes more of as a teaser than anything. ...

    IT?S NOT LIKE I haven?t thought about killing the humans since I hacked my governor module. But then I started exploring the company servers and discovered hundreds of hours of downloadable entertainment media, and I figured, what?s the hurry? I can always kill the humans after t...

    A really short little scene, in the vein of Murderbot - while they were still working at their old company, but already hacked. A nice five minute read. ...

    No sé porque esta pequeña muestra me sabe más a cyberpunk que otra cosa. La forma casual en que la compañía desestima la vida humana y solamente se preocupa por la producción de la mina presentada por los comentarios de un cyberg que le molesta que se lo confunda con alguien remo...

    Classic Murderbot. Yay! "It was like she could see me through my visor, which was a terrifying enough thought that my performance reliability dropped 3 percent. LOL! ...

    Assuming you are already a Murderbot fan -- you NEED to read this freebie. And it wouldn't make a bad intro for newbies. A rescue mission for the newly-free SecUnit: "A blast of heat and radiation washed over us. Sekai made an ?eep? noise. I wanted to make an ?eep? noise too...

    An interesting glimpse into the early days of Murderbot which shows some of its humanity. It's short & free here: https://www.wired.com/story/future-of... I don't think it matters when this is read in the series. ...

    Nice. Wanna know what Well's Murdebot series is about. This captures it perfectly. Wells can do so much with few words. ...

    Yaaay, a fun prequel to the Murderbot Diaries! What?s not to love! ...

    (Heart-eyes!) Loved this and now I need more. Glad it exists! 5 stars! ...

    ?With my governor module inert, I sometimes do things and I?m not entirely sure why. (Apparently getting free will after having 93 percent of your behavior controlled for your entire existence will do weird things to your impulse control.) Without thinking about it, I stepped off t...

    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 I was a little generous in my rating... ...but I love the little comments about Sanctuary Moon that give the impression that - at this point in Murderbot's life - it is still developing into the snarky, loving, anxiety-filled, grumpy asshole we all know ...

    Snarky & keen. I need more Murderbot in my life :D Nobody likes SecUnits. Even I don?t like us. We?re part-human, part-bot constructs, and we make everybody nervous and uncomfortable. With my governor module inert, I sometimes do things and I?m not entirely sure why. (A...

    Really short. An amuse bouche of a story. Love this but it was too short. ...

    A tiny scene to make me miss Murderbot even more! ...

    I read this off the Wired website. So good! I read the first and second books before I read this one. Just a taste but you can see how well this book is written. ...

    This is a very short story that takes place before the first MurderBot novella, and while it is just becoming accustomed to being a free-thinking being. While it is just a few paragraphs in length, MurderBot still has that same unique, snarky, self-deprecating tone and extremely introv...

    Super short, but I love Murderbot. ...

    Too short to get more stars, because it's more a prologue or a backstory, unnecessary and yet incomplete. However, short enough to scratch a fan's itch, and perhaps(?) to be worth reading if someone is undecided about reading the novella. ...

    Story 20 in my 24 Days of Shorts I hate mines, and mining, and humans who work in mining, and of all the stupid mines I can remember, I hate this stupid mine the most. But the humans hate it more ... I love cranky Murderbot!! My only complaint is that this was too short. r...

    A very short story about Murderbot's time in the mines, with all the usual Murderbot themes about slavery, mass media, and personhood. It works, but I wanted more from the ending. Is this at RaviHyral? Should I have a sense of impending doom? Or is this just another worksite and a brie...

    Murderbot prequel short story! 3.5 stars. It's free online here at Wired magazine. Review posted on Fantasy Literature: I hugely enjoyed reading the four MURDERBOT DIARIES novellas last year, so when I found that Martha Wells had published a prequel short story online in December, I...

    This is just a SCENE. What a tease. I want more MurderBot. ...

    NEVER GETTING TIRED OF READING ABOUT MURDERBOT. ...

    There's nothing wrong with this story, except it's too short. As a prequel to the terrific Murderbot series, Wells gives us such a tiny taste here in this really short story that I kept looking for more once I came to its end. Considering the importance of this serial to Murderbot's ...

    Waaaaaaaay to short. But a nice snipet into Murderbot's previous job, although it's much the same, save stupid humans :) Still it's tu short and it comes more of as a teaser than anything. ...

    Snarky & keen. I need more Murderbot in my life :D Nobody likes SecUnits. Even I don?t like us. We?re part-human, part-bot constructs, and we make everybody nervous and uncomfortable. With my governor module inert, I sometimes do things and I?m not entirely sure why. (A...

    This is a very short story that takes place before the first MurderBot novella, and while it is just becoming accustomed to being a free-thinking being. While it is just a few paragraphs in length, MurderBot still has that same unique, snarky, self-deprecating tone and extremely introv...

    Too short to get more stars, because it's more a prologue or a backstory, unnecessary and yet incomplete. However, short enough to scratch a fan's itch, and perhaps(?) to be worth reading if someone is undecided about reading the novella. ...

    Story 20 in my 24 Days of Shorts I hate mines, and mining, and humans who work in mining, and of all the stupid mines I can remember, I hate this stupid mine the most. But the humans hate it more ... I love cranky Murderbot!! My only complaint is that this was too short. r...

    A very short story about Murderbot's time in the mines, with all the usual Murderbot themes about slavery, mass media, and personhood. It works, but I wanted more from the ending. Is this at RaviHyral? Should I have a sense of impending doom? Or is this just another worksite and a brie...

    Good and fun prequel to the Murderbot Diaries. I love this character. ...

    This was so short but still so undeniably Murderbot and it's exactly the fix I needed. (Well, actually, I'm re-reading the entire series today so it might be an overload.) ...
