Six years after his self-published Sci-Fi novel became an unexpected hit (and spurred a movie adaptation with Matt Damon), “The Martian” author Andy Weir has announced that his long-awaited follow-up, Artemis, will be released on November 14.

As with “The Martian,” most of this novel’s action occurs outside of Earth — the moon, to be precise. There, the city called Artemis is populated by the haves, who have most things, and have-nots like Jasmine Bashara, a young woman struggling to survive as a smuggler. An opportunity to commit the perfect crime, however, envelops Jasmine in a struggle for power over the city.

After the critical and financial success of ”The Martian” film, 20th Century Fox has already acquired the rights to “Artemis.” Meanwhile, Weir is working with CBS on a pilot called “Mission Control” centered on the lives of NASA’s ground team.
