This week is episode 50 of Author Stories, and my guest is Andy Weir. Andy authored a book called The Martian that is soon to be released as a motion picture starring Matt Damon. Andy’s path to publishing is a fascinating and mind blowing story.
To celebrate our 50th episode, I am giving away a copy of The Martian audiobook. Leave a comment below to be entered. I will draw a winner on August 17, 2015.
Here is the trailer for The Martian:
ANDY WEIR was first hired as a programmer for a national laboratory at age fifteen and has been working as a software engineer ever since. He is also a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects like relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian is his first novel.
