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.
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 *
