“The Martian” Author Andy Weir Announces New Book

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.   Image courtesy of The Nerdist   As with “The Martian,” most of this novel’s action occurs outside of Earth — the moon, to be precise.
