About the author

Hey, fellow sci-fi nuts! I'm just your average reader who couldn't find enough great science fiction, so I turned to writing it myself. I live in Tokyo and I spend my days at an office participating, with poorly concealed ambivalence, in the preparations for our planet to be taken over by robots. 

I'm actually quite optimistic and I love telling stories about the future, because no matter how much technology changes, human beings never do! Even more than that, I love sharing these stories with readers, and that is why I'm offering you a FREE book.

The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.
"What should you read after all the Iain M. Banks Culture novels, and Neal Stephenson's science fiction? Felix R. Savage is a great place to start. " -- Reader Review

"This is quickly becoming my favorite science fiction series ever." --Reader Review

As a Space Corps agent in the year 2285, Elfrida Goto doesn’t expect to be liked. Her job is to help and protect colonists in space … but they usually don’t want to be helped, and the squatters on 11073 Galapagos are no exception.

Tasked with evacuating them from their doomed asteroid, Elfrida struggles with an uncooperative telepresence robot and an angry local liaison. It doesn’t help that she’s got a crush on her boss, the aloof and intriguing Gloria dos Santos.

But when a lethal AI fleet attacks Elfrida's home base, her mission changes in a hurry. Now, she has just one chance to save the people of 11073 Galapagos. Fighting was never in her job description … but she’ll just have to learn. Fast.

The Galapagos Incident is the first novel in the Elfrida Goto Trilogy, Volume I of the Sol System Renegades series, an epic science fiction adventure that reviewers are calling a new classic in the space opera genre.

The Callisto Gambit

Cosmic war has torn their lives apart. Will their last-ditch plan prevent annihilation or doom them all?

Alicia Petruzzelli doesn't play by the rules, but she knows Star Force needs her in the war against a hostile AI. When the fleet's discipline rubs her the wrong way, she questions the UN's strategy of overwhelming force. As a riskier plan comes to the fore, Alicia must consider becoming a deserter to save humanity.

Jun Yonezawa is an outlaw AI. He knows the UN's plan is flawed and a singlehanded cyber-attack may be the only chance for success. Reluctantly aided by John Mendoza, Jun embarks on a perilous mission into enemy territory.

Elfrida Goto has come a long way from asteroid eviction. Her new mission is to unite the PLAN's enemies for one final push against the genocidal AI. If all the other pieces fall into place, Elfrida's allies will have one chance to pull off a deadly maneuver that could turn the war around… or destroy them all in the process.

The Phobos Maneuver is the second book in the Solarian War Trilogy, Volume II of the Sol System Renegades series, an epic science fiction adventure that reviewers are calling a new classic in the space opera genre.
