'The Martian' Author Andy Weir Returns With Heist Novel 'Artemis'

If you're looking for a new novel to read over the holidays, The Martian author Andy Weir just released his second book, Artemis, a sci-fi heist romp set on the moon.

"Jazz Bashara is a criminal," the back cover description reads. "Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down..."

Now available on Amazon for less than $20, this should definitely find its way onto your reading list. And for those who prefer audiobooks, the always fantastic Rosario Dawson wields the narration.
