With this week’s release of Matt Damon’s new film THE MARTIAN, we thought you might be interested in this archived interview from March 2014 when the guys spoke with THE MARTIAN author Andy Weir.
Larry Niven, author of science fiction classic RINGWORLD Calls Andy Weir’s novel, “Gripping.” He goes on to say that THE MARTIAN, “…Shapes up like Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe as written by someone brighter.”
THE MARTIAN tells the story of astronaut Mark Watney, who just six days prior was one of the first humans on Mars. Now, he may be one of the first to die there. It’s a gripping story of one man’s brave ingenuity versus an environment that wants him dead. Author Andy Weir tells a story evoking the finest traits of humanity… reason, heart, and wise-ass humor in the face of dire circumstances.
Join Aron and Wayne as they chat with Andy Weir discussing this novel’s history from self-published web novel to the bestseller list. Plus, the first chapter of the audio novel as read by R. C. Bray!
