This is book number 3 in the Willful Child series.

The New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Malazan Book of the Fallen series, continues his hilarious science fiction series--parodying and paying homage to exploring the final frontier--with Willful Child: The Search for Spark.

These are the adventures of the starship A.S.F. Willful Child. Its ongoing mission: to seek out strange new worlds on which to plant the Terran flag, to subjugate and if necessary obliterate new life-forms.

We join the not terribly bright but exceedingly cocksure Captain Hadrian Sawback and his motley crew on board the Starship Willful Child for a series of devil-may-care, near-calamitous and downright chaotic adventures through the infinite vastness of interstellar space.

Steven Erikson has taken his lifelong passion for Star Trek and transformed it into a smart, inventive, and hugely entertaining spoof on the whole overblown mankind-exploring-space-for-the-good-of-all-species-but-trashing-stuff-with-a-lot-of-high-tech-gadgets-along-the-way adventure. The result is a novel that deftly parodies the genre while also paying fond homage to it.

STEVEN ERIKSON is an archaeologist and anthropologist and a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His Malazan Book of the Fallen series has met widespread international acclaim and established him as a major voice in the world of fantasy fiction. The first book in the series, Gardens of the Moon, was shortlisted for a World Fantasy Award. The second novel, Deadhouse Gates, was voted one of the ten best fantasy novels of the year by SF Site. He lives in Canada.

Willful Child is a love letter to Star Trek and its fans—a pitch-perfect tour de force.”—Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues

“Cleverly written and brilliantly funny with a charming, handsome—and self-absorbed—hero at the center of the story.... With an imaginative plot, plenty of action and a lively pace, Willful Child and Erikson do not disappoint.”—RT Book Reviews

Willful Child is a gloriously snarky send-up of Star Trek, a hilarious chronicle of either a mad genius or a cunning egomaniac and a space opera that covers all the usual galactic bases with wit and charm....”—San Jose Mercury News
