    Default The Collectible Andy Weir

    I know he only has one book, but he seems to be a popular author here amongst those that have read The Martian and there are two (that I know of) collectible editions of the book and a movie due out this fall. With that said, here's my Andy Weir collection so far. I also have a lettered and limited edition on preorder from SP; will add pictures of those when the eventually arrive.

    Love the books Joe!

    Unrelated, but I think this is the original PDF Andy Weir released when fans were asking for something they could put on an eReader. I haven't read it, so not sure how much it differs (if at all) from the published book. Thought I'd share in case anyone was looking for a copy.

    Nice books. I just have a s/l coming from sub press. Gotta thank Shac for letting me know Andy will be out west later in the year - October 29th - right around the movie release. It's only a short 110 minute drive - but I've already taken the day off (and the next day) - already called and placed an rsvp. Also managed to get an unsigned 1/1 - on its way. So I'm psyched that I'll get to meet him and have my book signed. I've tried to get the UK s/n - but too late on that train.

    Very jealous! That sounds like it's going to be a great time. I just subscribed to his newsletter; hopefully he'll come out to NYC sometime soon

    I subscribed to same newsletter:

    http://www.andyweirauthor.com/events

    Looks like only 3 events listed for this year and 1 early next. Also he seems to be pretty active on his Facebook page. Although I hate most forms of social media and stay off the "look at me sites" - see what I've been dong, does that make you feel any better or worse about your life? Come on let's be friends...sorry don't know what got into me (yes I do).

    The lettered edition sold out almost instantly, but as you saw, the s/l is still available. They released the cover the other day.

    And here is why I tend to believe that score... The book/ movie feels like you can tell what is going to happen from start to finish.... No surprises or twists... I could be wrong but that's what I see... Hence why I asked.

    I enjoyed it quite a bit. I'd say 8/10.

    Tough book to read if you aren't science/math minded. 6/10.

    I finally started reading it. I've been slightly bored by all the highly detailed technical explanations. But I'm getting through it and will pass final judgement when I'm done.

    I will say I did enjoy it in a way. The book however was similar to watching Macgyver. My biggest issue was most off the characters had the same voice. They all sounded and shared too many similarities with the protagonist.
