AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW A lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this incredible new science-based thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Martian. ________________________________________ 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 crew mates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, he realises that an impossible task now confronts him. Alone on this tiny ship that's been cobbled together by every government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, it's up to him to conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And thanks to an unexpected ally, he just might have a chance.

Part scientific mystery, part dazzling interstellar journey, 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.

Andy Weir built a two-decade career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, The Martian, allowed him to live out his dream of writing full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of such subjects as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.

Reviews for Project Hail Mary

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 * One of the most original, compelling, and fun voyages I've ever taken. Weir imbues every page of this rollicking adventure with an unabashed love and respect for science, while giving us a prescient glimpse of where it could take us and how it might save us.' * Ernest Cline * 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 plausible science fiction books I've ever read * Tim Peake *
