MEGA BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Andy Weir smashed his way onto the bestseller lists (and the big screen) with the breathtaking success of his debut THE MARTIAN—hailed as a new science-fiction classic, with millions of copies sold. His followup, ARTEMIS, was no slouch either, spending several weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in hardcover.
RETURNING TO MARTIAN TERRITORY: After stepping away from science-survival to give us a heist novel in ARTEMIS, here Weir delivers the kind of story fans of THE MARTIAN will be hungry for—a lone astronaut, sciencing his way past impossible problems and terrifying odds.
WITH AN INCREDIBLE NEW PLOT AND SCOPE: This time, our hero’s not just fighting for his own survival. It’s the future of the earth itself. The mystery he must puzzle out, and the science behind it, are brilliantly unexpected and satisfying, as only Weir could deliver, and in ways that far surpass THE MARTIAN—and the places the quest takes us are equally jawdropping. Not to mention a certain unforgettable friend our hero makes along the way.
HUGE MOVIE BUZZ: Film rights sold to MGM with a dream team attached: Ryan Gosling to star, Phil Lord & Chris Miller (of Lego Movie fame) onboard to direct, and a producing team that includes Amy Pascal, former head of Sony studios.
PERFECT AUTHOR AMBASSADOR: Weir has proven himself equally at home in front of network TV cameras, speaking to thousands at places like Google and NASA, hobnobbing on Hollywood red carpets, even testifying before a Senate subcommittee—winning over fans and befriending geek idols at every step along the way.
“A propulsive adventure.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Weir spins a space yarn in a way only he can. Fans of his earlier works won’t be disappointed.”—Newsweek
“Andy Weir proves once again that he is a singular talent. Project Hail Mary is so fascinating and propulsive that it’s downright addictive. From the first page as Ryland wakes up not knowing who or where he is, I was hooked.”—Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six
“Reading Project Hail Mary is like going on a field trip to outer space with the best science teacher you’ve ever had—and your class assignment is to save the world. This is one of the most original, compelling, and fun voyages I’ve ever taken.”—Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One
“Two worlds in peril, a competent (but flawed and human) man, a competent alien, unending scientific puzzles to unravel, with humanity itself at risk, this one has everything fans of old school SF (like me) love. If you like a lot of science in your science fiction, Andy Weir is the writer for you.”—George R. R. Martin, New York Times bestselling author of A Game of Thrones
“I loved The Martian, but I actually find Project Hail Mary to be Mr. Weir’s finest work to date. It’s somehow both exciting, yet also personal. I’m constantly amazed by how well Mr. Weir continues to write wonderfully accessible science fiction without compromising either the science or the fiction.”—Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Stormlight Archive series
“Brilliantly funny and enjoyable . . . one of the most plausible science fiction books I’ve ever read.”—Tim Peake, ESA astronaut and internationally bestselling author of Limitless
“Thrilling doesn’t even begin to describe Project Hail Mary, which is undisputedly the best book I’ve read in a very, very long time . . . I cheered, I laughed (a lot), I cried, and when the twist arrived and the book revealed its true target, my jaw hit the floor. Mark my words: Project Hail Mary is destined to become a classic.”—Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of
