"Prepare to fall in love with Binti." —Neil Gaiman
Winner of the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for Best Novella!
Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.
Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.
If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself — but first she has to make it there, alive.

The whole story telling was amazing. There were new and unique ideas, things I’ve never read about in other sci-fi. It’s somewhere between magic/mysticism and science, what Binti does.
The delivery by Robin Miles is spectacular as well.
It was a bit pricy… I bought it three days ago at $6.99 only to find it’s now $2.99, but whatever.
Interesting short story
I enjoyed the story, and found myself wondering what would happen next. It was a fun short story, and I would definitely read more of the author's stories.
Fascinating sci-fi story with an original heroine!
