2016 Nebula Award finalist for Best Novella

The Minerva Sierra Challenge is a grueling spectacle, the cyborg's Tour de France. Rich thrill-seekers with corporate sponsorships, extensive support teams, and top-of-the-line exoskeletal and internal augmentations pit themselves against the elements in a day-long race across the Sierra Nevada.

Marmeg Guinto doesnt have funding, and she doesnt have support. She cobbled her gear together from parts she found in rich peoples garbage and spent the money her mother wanted her to use for nursing school to enter the race. But the Minerva Challenge is the only chance she has at a better life for herself and her younger brothers, and shes ready to risk it all.

Runtime is S. B. Divya's exciting science fiction debut.


A thrilling romp through a gleaming cybernetic future that's neither dystopia nor utopia, but embedded in our reality? I wish more science fiction were as exciting and relevant as Runtime. ? Ken Liu, Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award winner and author of The Grace of Kings

"S. B. Divya is a new light on the science fiction scene, a writer with the promise and talent to become one of our genre's stars. Have a read; she's a wonderful storyteller." ? Catherine Asaro, Nebula Award winning author.
