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.

"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.

Andy Weir
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.

Three full-length space thrillers. Thousands of minds blown.

The year is 2285. Humanity is locked in conflict with an enigmatic AI based on Mars. While Earth dawdles, it's up to a handful of brave men and women to defend our far-flung colonies thoughout the solar system ...

The Galapagos Incident

Elfrida Goto is a field agent for the Space Corps in the Venus sector. Helping and protecting space colonists is her job ... even when that means evicting them from their homes. But when the enemy attacks her home base, her latest job goes sideways in a hurry. To save the colonists of 11073 Galapagos, she'll have to go up against the most dangerous foe humanity has ever known.

The Vesta Conspiracy

Elfrida Goto is a hero and a lifesaver, but as far as the Space Corps is concerned, she's a reminder of the worst disaster ever to befall the Corps. Banished to 4 Vesta, the boondocks of the asteroid belt, she's commissioned to work with the University of Vesta to look for more resource-rich asteroids. Instead, she finds something deadly.

The Mercury Rebellion

After her bruising experiences in the asteroid belt, Elfrida Goto lands a secure job on Mercury, the factory of the solar system. But violence is about to engulf the hottest planet. Humanity's AI nemesis is closing in on Mercury, and only Elfrida stands in its way ...

"Good (new) old-fashioned hard SF by a brilliant new writer!" -- Reader Review

Amid Earth's war against Mars, one man desperately searches for a safe home for his people.

Kiyoshi Yonezawa—smuggler and occasional pirate—can look after himself. Looking after 500 homeless friends and relations is a much bigger challenge. As the war between Earth and Mars heats up, chaos strikes the asteroid belt, and Kiyoshi's people seek refuge aboard an arkship that would leave the solar system far behind.

Convinced it's a deathtrap, Kiyoshi tries to extricate them. But in the process, his brother is wrongfully arrested by Earth's dreaded secret police. Determined to rescue his brother and free his people, Kiyoshi’s chances of prevailing against the overwhelming might of the UN look bleak.

With the rule of law in the Belt crumbling, a deal with the biggest crook on Ceres looks like his only hope...
