About the Author

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, THE MARTIAN, allowed him to live out his dream of writing fulltime. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.

Reviews

Praise for Artemis: "An action-packed techno-thriller of the first order...the perfect vehicle for humans who want to escape, if only for a time, the severe gravity of planet earth. The pages fly by."--USA Today "Revitalizes the Lunar-colony scenario, with the author's characteristic blend of engineering know-how and survival suspense...Jazz is a great heroine, tough with a soft core, crooked with inner honesty."--Wall Street Journal "Smart and sharp...Weir has done it again [with] a sci-fi crowd pleaser made for the big screen."--Salon.com "Makes cutting-edge science sexy and relevant...Weir has created a realistic and fascinating future society, and every detail feels authentic and scientifically sound." --Associated Press "Out-of-this-world storytelling."--Houston Chronicle "Weir excels when it comes to geeky references, snarky humour and scenes of ingenious scientific problem-solving." --Financial Times "Weir has done the impossible--he's topped The Martian with a sci-fi-noir-thriller set in a city on the moon. What more do you want from life? Go read it!"- Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter "Everything you could hope for in a follow-up to The Martian another smart, fun, fast-paced adventure that you won't be able to put down." - Ernest Cline, New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One "A superior near-future thriller...with a healthy dose of humor." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An exciting, whip-smart, funny thrill-ride...one of the best science fiction novels of the year." --Booklist (starred review) "Narrated by a kick-ass leading lady, this thriller has it all - a smart plot, laugh-out-loud funny moments, and really cool science." --Library Journal (starred review) Praise for The Martian "Brilliant...a celebration of human ingenuity [and] the purest example of real-science sci-fi for many years." --Wall Street Journal "A gripping survival story." --New York Times "Terrific...a crackling good read."--USA Today "A marvel...Robinson Crusoe in a space suit."--Washington Post "Impressively geeky...the technical details keep the story relentlessly precise and the suspense ramped up." --Entertainment Weekly "A story for readers who enjoy thrillers, science fiction, non-fiction, or flat-out adventure." --Associated Press "Utterly nail-baiting and memorable."--Financial Times "A hugely entertaining novel that reads like a rocket ship afire."--Chicago Tribune
