Summary

The best-selling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller - a heist story set on the moon. Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first. Bringing to life Weir's brash, whip-smart protagonist is actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, Sin City, Death Proof). With the breathless immediacy of one realizing they're one cracked helmet visor away from oblivion, Dawson deftly captures Jazz's first-person perspective – all while delivering sarcastic Weir-ian one-liners and cracking wise in the face of death. And with a cast of diverse characters from all walks of life calling Artemis home, Dawson tonally somersaults to voice Kenyan prime ministers, Ukrainian scientists, and Saudi welders. It's a performance that transports listeners right alongside Jazz, matching her step for step on every lunar inch of her pulse-pounding journey.

Summary

A brand-new production of Andy Weir’s modern sci-fi classic, narrated by the incomparable Wil Wheaton, and featuring bonus content from the writings of Mark Watney. Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills - and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit - he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him? Wil Wheaton, who has lent his voice to sci-fi blockbusters like Ready Player One and Redshirts, breathes new life (and plenty of sarcasm) into the iconic character of Mark Watney, making this edition a must-listen for both longtime fans of The Martian and new listeners alike. BONUS MATERIAL: This edition includes the following extras: “Diary of an AssCan” - Mark Watney, new astronaut “I Made It!” - A happy letter to Mom “Car Trouble” - A somewhat sad letter to Mom “The Earthling” - A postscript. *Available for the first time in this recording

Summary

From the beet fields of North Dakota to the wilderness campgrounds of California to an Amazon warehouse in Texas, people who once might have kicked back to enjoy their sunset years are hard at work. Underwater on mortgages or finding that Social Security comes up short, they're hitting the road in astonishing numbers, forming a new community of nomads: RV and van-dwelling migrant laborers, or "workampers". Building on her groundbreaking Harper's cover story, "The End of Retirement", which brought attention to these formerly settled members of the middle class, Jessica Bruder follows one such RVer, Linda, between physically taxing seasonal jobs and reunions of her new van-dweller family, or "vanily". Bruder tells a compelling, eye-opening tale of both the economy's dark underbelly and the extraordinary resilience, creativity, and hope of these hardworking, quintessential Americans - many of them single women - who have traded rootedness for the dream of a better life.

Summary

Novela brillante, delirio ingenioso, con una mecánica del suspense que sorprenderá al lector una y otra vez. Una experiencia literaria excepcional en gravedad cero. «La mejor novela de ciencia ficción en años.» (Wall Street Journal) Seis días atrás el astronauta Mark Watney se convirtió en uno de los primeros hombres en caminar por la superficie de Marte. Ahora está seguro de que será el primer hombre en morir allí. La tripulación de la nave en que viajaba se ve obligada a evacuar el planeta a causa de una tormenta de polvo, dejando atrás a Mark tras darlo por muerto. Pero él está vivo, y atrapado a millones de kilómetros de cualquier ser humano, sin posibilidad de enviar señales a la Tierra. De todos modos, si lograra establecer conexión, moriría mucho antes de que el rescate llegara. Sin embargo, Mark no se da por vencido; armado con su ingenio, sus habilidades y sus conocimientos sobre botánica, se enfrentará a obstáculos aparentemente insuperables. Por suerte, el sentido del humor resultará ser su mayor fuente de fuerza. Obstinado en seguir con vida, incubará un plan absolutamente demencial para ponerse en contacto con la NASA.
