"The Martian" Signed Limited Edition - 2015
Among the publishing and theatrical entertainment phenomena of 2015 will surely be the release of Andy Weir's masterful book, The Martian. Originally self-published in 2011 as a $0.99 ebook on Amazon, the book caught the attention of science fiction fans worldwide who snapped up 35,000 copies of it in less than three months.
This stunning Subterranean Press Edition is oversized—10" x 7 1/4"—and is limited to 750 signed and numbered hardcover copies, plus a very limited number of Publishers Copies ("PC") set aside for VIPs (of which ours is one), and 26 Lettered and signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase. As prelude to the story:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive-and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.
Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills-and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit-he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him.
In As New, Unread condition.
