Andy Weir is an American published author.

Weir was born on June 16, 1972. He has worked as a computer programmer and a software engineer. He first got a job at the age of fifteen years old working as a programmer at a national laboratory. He has always been a fan of space and interested in subjects such as orbital mechanics, relativistic physics, and manned spaceflight’s history.

He would work as a programmer until the success of his first book let him pursue writing on a full time basis. Weir lives in California. That book that allowed him to pursue fiction writing as his job officially was the 2011 book The Martian. The book would become a film carrying the same name. The Martian came out in 2015 directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon as the main character.

Weir started writing when he was in his twenties. He has published various writing on his own site. He is the author of Casey and Andy, a comedic web comic, that ran from 2001-2008. He also wrote on Cheshire Crossing, another comic. These helped with his later writing career. He had failed to have his first novel, Theft of Pride, published.

His short story “The Egg” would go on to garner attention, even becoming included as a main concept for rapper Logic’s album “Everybody”. But it was The Martian that got him major attention.

The sci-fi book was written with the intent of being scientifically accurate. Andy did major research into Mars’ planet conditions, orbital mechanics, manned spaceflight history, as well as botany. The book was first available for free on his own site and then he made it available for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle. It hit the best sellers list on Kindle. Then he sold its rights to Crown Publishing Group.

The book would come out in print and came out at the number twelve spot on the best seller list by the New York Times. It would be made into a movie shortly after. A fear when it comes to flying prevented him from visiting the Budapest film set, but he was later able to overcome this fear for other events with some work.

In 2016, he got an award for Best New Writer in the form of the John W. Campbell Award. His short fan-fiction story “Lacero” came out in the 2016 Ready Player One edition and became part of the universe’s canon. It also is a prequel to the main book. That same year, he released a short story collection on the TAPAS app called “The Principles of Uncertainty”.

Since The Martian, Weird has had his second feature novel come out, Artemis. It was published in 2017 and is set on the moon. The book was optioned to become a science fiction film.

Weir’s pilot named Mission Control was picked up by CBS in 2017. The same year, he also remade Cheshire Crossing with Sarah Anderson for the tapas website, but would publish it in 2019 as a graphic novel. A film adaptation was announced in 2019 from Walt Disney Pictures and Amblin Partners.

The Martian is a fascinating science fiction book. It was nominated for the best novel for the John W. Campbell Memorial Award and won the John W. Campbell Award for best book. If you love science fiction, be sure to check out this fascinating story and see the movie too!

The main character in this book is Mark Watney. He’s an astronaut with a very serious problem. He was one of the first humans to set foot on Mars. Now he’s run into some trouble. Stranded on the red planet, with no communications to Earth, in a short term design habitat, everything has gone wrong.

Everything has the potential to go wrong as well. There are constant threats to his survival, whether it’s from air supply, water, food, or habitation breaches. When a dust storm sends his crew off the planet, they think that he’s dead. He nearly was, but now he’s stranded. He’s all on his own and doesn’t have a way to let Earth know he has survived.

Even if he could, supplies would go before rescue came for him. So he’s got to find a way to work with what he has and make it work in his favor. He’s not giving up. Mark has skills and ingenuity working for him. Taking on one obstacle after another and trying to keep human error from killing him, he’s doing all that he can to survive.

Can he beat the odds? Will his resourcefulness save him and get him a chance at rescue? Read this incredible sci-fi story for yourself to find out what happens!

Artemis is the second science fiction novel to come out from Andy Weir. It was nominated for a Prometheus Award in the category of best book.

Artemis is on the moon, its first city. The population is around two thousand people. While it consists of mainly tourists, there are others that live there. Such as the criminals.

One such person is main character Jasmine “Jazz” Bashara. She lives in the lunar colony’s poorer area. She works as a porter, but owes debt, can barely pay rent in her tiny apartment, and eats flavored algae.

She could use more cash. The smuggling just isn’t enough to help her make ends meet. When a bigger score comes at her, it’s the chance for more money and she can’t turn it down. But to do it, she’s going to need to up her game. It also requires that she is quick, has technical skills, and can handle larger explosions.

Jazz takes it all on because she’s always up for a challenge and can usually pull things off. But with reduced gravity and lots of aspects to this crime, it’s pretty risky. Still, she can’t say no. The last thing that she anticipated was getting into the middle of a fight for Artemis’s control.

She’s being chased by a killer, in demand with the law, and in the middle of two forces. Jazz is in deep, and she’s going to have to think fast if she wants to survive and help save the lunar colony. Can she do it? Read this book to find out!
