The Martian
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Artemis: A Novel
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.

El marciano/ The Martian (Spanish Edition)
Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read

Novela brillante, delirio ingenioso, con una mecánica del suspense que sorprenderá al lector una y otra vez. Una experiencia literaria excepcional en gravedad cero.


«La mejor novela de ciencia ficción en años.» - Wall Street Journal

Seis días atrás el astronauta Mark Watney se convirtió en uno de los primeros hombres en caminar por la superficie de Marte.

Ahora está seguro de que será el primer hombre en morir allí. La tripulación de la nave en que viajaba se ve obligada a evacuar el planeta a causa de una tormenta de polvo, dejando atrás a Mark tras darlo por muerto. Pero él está vivo, y atrapado a millones de kilómetros de cualquier ser humano, sin posibilidad de enviar señales a la Tierra.
De todos modos, si lograra establecer conexión, moriría mucho antes de que el rescate llegara. Sin embargo, Mark no se da por vencido; armado con su ingenio, sus habilidades y sus conocimientos sobre botánica, se enfrentará a obstáculos aparentemente insuperables. Por suerte, el sentido del humor resultará ser su mayor fuente de fuerza.

Obstinado en seguir con vida, incubará un plan absolutamente demencial para ponerse en contacto con la NASA.

Reseñas:
«Una de las mejores novelas que he leído en mucho tiempo. Parece tan real que casi podría ser no-ficción y, sin embargo, tiene la unidad narrativa y la potencia de un cohete. Un Apollo 13 multiplicado por cien.»
Douglas Preston, #1 del New York Times
«¡No lo podía dejar! Tiene la rara combinación de ser una buena y original historia y con unos personajes interesantes con una fascinante precisión técnica. Una suma de MacGyver y La isla misteriosa de Verne.»
Chris Hadfield, astronauta, comandante de la Estación Espacial Internacional y autor de la Guía de un astronauta para vivir en la Tierra.
«El mejor libro que he leído en mucho tiempo. Inteligente, divertida e intensa.»
Hugh Howey, autor de Espejismo
«Weir ha creado un thriller de supervivencia que no da tregua, entretenido y creativo, un MacGyver atrapado en Marte que se lee, se siente y se vive de manera tan real y terrible como la verdadera historia de la Apollo 13.»
Ernest Cline, autor de Ready Player One
«El marciano se perfila como el nuevo Robinson Crusoe de Defoe, pero escrito por alguien aún más brillante.»
Larry Niven, ganador de varios premios Hugo y Nebula.
«Fuerte y valiente. Un Robinson Crusoe en Marte en el siglo XXI.»
Steve Berry


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

A mission to Mars. A freak accident. One man’s struggle to survive.


Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate the planet while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded on Mars’ surface, completely alone, with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive. And even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone years before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, Mark won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark’s not ready to quit. Armed with nothing but his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a gallows sense of humor that proves to be his greatest source of strength—he embarks on a dogged quest to stay alive. As he confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next, Mark begins to let himself believe he might make it off the planet alive. But Mars has plenty of surprises in store for him yet.
