Project Hail Mary
AS SEEN ON BARACK OBAMA''S 2021 SUMMER READING LIST ''THE MOST ENJOYABLE HARD SF I HAVE READ IN YEARS'' THE GUARDIAN OUT NOW from the bestselling author of THE MARTIAN ''Weir''s finest work to date. . . This is the one book I read last year that I am certain I can recommend to anyone, no matter who, and know they''ll love it.'' BRANDON SANDERSON ''If you like a lot of science in your science fiction, Andy Weir is the writer for you. . . This one has everything fans of old school SF (like me) love.'' GEORGE R.R. MARTIN ''Brilliantly funny and enjoyable. One of the most plausible science fiction books I''ve ever read'' TIM PEAKE, astronaut ________________________________________ A lone astronaut. An impossible mission. An ally he never imagined. Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission - and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish. Except that right now, he doesn''t know that. He can''t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it. All he knows is that he''s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he''s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company. His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it''s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery-and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species. And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he''s got to do it all alone. Or does he? An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could imagine it, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian -- while taking us to places it never dreamed of going. ________________________________________ ''One of the most original, compelling, and fun voyages I''ve ever taken.'' ERNEST CLINE, author of Ready Player One and Ready Player Two ''Undisputedly the best book I''ve read in a very, very long time. Mark my words: Project Hail Mary is destined to become a classic.'' BLAKE CROUCH ''Andy Weir''s brilliant Project Hail Mary...is one of those stirring sci-fi novels about every government on Earth banding together, through science, to save civilisation from collapse. I loved it.'' THE TIMES ''A suspenseful portrait of human ingenuity and resilience [that] builds to an unexpectedly moving ending. A winner.'' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY ''Weir returns with gusto . . . his writing flows naturally, and his characters and dialogue crackle with energy. With this novel, he takes his place as a genuine star in the mainstream SF world.'' BOOKLIST

He snickered "Well your arms are telling another story habibty." I looked down to realize I was still entangled in his embrace. "Oh shut up. You''re enjoying this as much as I am." He laughed. "God, I missed you." Now it was my turn to snicker. "Who do you miss? God or me?" He groaned while I laughed. "You''re a handful.

The Martian
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?

Cheshire Crossing

Cheshire Crossing
In a one-of-a-kind graphic novel collaboration between the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian and the beloved illustrator behind Sarah’s Scribbles, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy team up to save the multiverse, from Wonderland to Neverland and Oz. Originating as fan fiction from the brilliant imagination of Andy Weir, now brought to vivid life by Sarah Andersen, Cheshire Crossing is a funny, breakneck, boundlessly inventive journey through classic worlds as you’ve never seen them before. Years after their respective returns from Wonderland, Neverland, and Oz, the trio meet here, at Cheshire Crossing—a boarding school where girls like them learn how to cope with their supernatural experiences and harness their magical world-crossing powers. But Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy—now teenagers, who’ve had their fill of meddling authority figures—aren’t content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they’re dashing from one universe to the next, leaving havoc in their wake—and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match. To stop them, the girls will have to draw on all of their powers . . . and marshal a team of unlikely allies from across the magical multiverse. Advance praise for Cheshire Crossing “Deliciously funny . . . a shrewd and spirited adaptation that will leave audiences hoping for another installment . . . Andersen’s delightful cartoon drawing style meshes perfectly with Weir’s prose, allowing the work to broaden its appeal beyond middle graders to young adults and adults.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
