Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Architects of Memory by Karen Osborne

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.



Terminally Ill salvage pilot Ash Jackson lost everything in the war with the alien Vai, but she’ll be damned if she loses her future. Her plan: to buy, beg, or lie her way out of corporate indenture and fine a cure.

When her crew salvages a genocidal weapon from a ravaged starship above a dead colony, Ash uncovers a conspiracy of corporate intrigue and betrayal that threatens to turn her into a living weapon.



I don’t read a ton of sci-fi but this one really interested me after seeing Karen Osborne in the space opera panel at the r/fantasy virtual convention. The concept of this one seems super intriguing and isn’t that the best title ever? Architects of Memory is expected August 25th 2020 from Tor books.

    Mmm, I don’t read a lot of sci fi either tbh so I’ll wait and see what you make of this. It could be a good read for the forthcoming sci fi events later in the year.

      Right! I’ve been wanting to stretch out and read more sci-fi lately so I’ve been trying to find more that interests me. I’m glad that space opera is back in trend because it’s a subgenre I enjoy. 🙂

      I’ve really been trying to read more science fiction–I think I’ve been doing pretty good lately and I’m enjoying some things I normally wouldn’t have picked up so I think it’s good to branch out sometimes. 🙂

      You’re welcome! Yeah, I don’t read a ton of sci-fi either but I do love a good space opera and I’m glad the sub-genre seems to be making a come back in recent years. 🙂
