A reason to read...

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could imagine it, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian, while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.

Project Hail Mary : From the bestselling author of The Martian - Andy Weir

An impossible mission. An ally he never imagined. Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission - and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

Except that right now, he doesn't know that. He can't even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it. All he knows is that he's been asleep for a very, very long time.

And he's just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company. His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it's up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery-and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species. And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he's got to do it all alone. Or does he?

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could imagine it, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian - while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.

Andy Weir

Andy Weir is the global bestselling author of Artemis and The Martian, which was originally self-published before being picked up by Del Rey in 2014 and going on to sell over four million copies in English worldwide and winner of the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer at the 2016 Hugo Awards.

The Hollywood blockbuster adaptation of The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) and starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain and Chiwetel Ejiofor, grossed over $630 million worldwide. Before the success of The Martian, Andy spent twenty years working as a software engineer. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of such subjects as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight, and his books are universally praised by the scientific community, including NASA, for being hugely accurate and meticulously researched.

For Project Hail Mary, Andy has worked alongside Nobel Prize winning researchers and NASA scientists to conceptualise how mankind may one day achieve interstellar travel. Project Hail Mary has received a huge number of stellar endorsements from George R. R Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Ernest Cline, Tim Peake, and has been selected for the Radio 2 Book Club pick for May 2021.
