Behind the scientific, fact-based novels of Andy Weir, the author of The Martian
In 2015, Andy Weir made it big with the Matt Damon movie adaptation of his 2011 book, The Martian. To follow up, he is releasing a new book called Artemis (out now) where Weir imagines life on the moon. Weir builds his science fiction novels with scientific facts, something that not all sci-fi literature does.
Today, guest host Eli Glasner will speak to Weir about his process of imagining life on the moon, being a science-obsessed writer in a time when facts are debated and moving from a self-published outsider to bestselling author.
