Just a quick alert that Artemis, the second novel by The Martian author Andy Weir, is out this week. I enjoyed reading The Martian (and watching the Ridley Scott adaptation) so I’m looking forward to cracking this open.
WELCOME TO ARTEMIS. The first city on the moon.
Population 2,000. Mostly tourists.
Jazz Bashara is a criminal. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon. But it’s not enough.
So when she’s offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it. But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it’s a lot more dangerous…
Artemis was officially published on 14 November 2017.
