SO WEIR: Andy Weir, author of 'The Martian,' has a new book titled 'Artemis.'

Author and Mountain View denizen Andy Weir burst onto the pop culture scene after his originally self-published sci-fi novel, The Martian, became one of the biggest books of 2014. In 2015, the story was adapted into a movie starring Matt Damon. Now, Weir is back with his second novel, Artemis. This time, Weir sets his sights a little closer to home. Centered around Jasmine Bashara, a “directionless twentysomething” living on the one and only moon colony, Artemis, the novel is billed as a “smart crime caper” rife with excellent world-building and plenty of suspense. A movie is already in the works.
