Fanart for Book 2 of James S. A. Corey's Expanse series, my new favorite series. These books are so well done and so much fun.
Captain James Holden, XO Naomi Nagata, mechanic Amos Burton, Martian marine Bobbie Draper, pilot Alex Kamal, UN secretary Chrisjen Avasarala, botanist Praxidike Meng, Outer Planets Alliance leader Fred Johnson, and MALEVOLENT SENTIENT VENUS.
One of my favorite things about these books is that the characters are very diverse in ethnicity, class background, and age, and the female characters are treated like actual humans. They're also pretty kickass, whether they're engineers, soldiers, leaders, or priests. As I'm sure my fellow spec fic fans are well aware, sci fi and fantasy can be a minefield of terrible female tropes written by neckbeards, so it's nice to see someone do it right.
I want to play in microgravity now.
