Andy Weir wrote The Martian, which Ridley Scott turned into a successful Matt Damon vehicle about a guy who eats poop potatoes in order to survive life on the red planet. I’m sure it was about other stuff, too, but once you have poop potatoes on the mind, it’s hard to follow the other threads about the genuine trials facing human beings as we consider planetary colonization. Anyway, Weir is one of the great contemporary writers of brainy sci-fi, and he’ll be reading from his new novel, Artemis, alongside our very own great contemporary writer of brainy sci-fi, Neal Stephenson. The story centers on a smuggler named Jazz Bashara, who gets into some trouble when she tries to sneak “contraband” into the solar system’s first and only moon colony.
