Description
(First Edition, with Tipped-in Autograph Page) Following the runaway success of his debut novel The Martian, John W. Campbell Award winner Andy Weir takes us a little closer to home this time. A century from now, Artemis is the first and only city on the moon. Most of the 2,000 people living there are officials, rich tourists, or eccentric billionaires; for the rest, like feisty young porter Jazz Bashara, life is more tenuous, and she supplements her meager pay by smuggling in the occasional bit of contraband. So when a truly lucrative offer lands in her lap—for a perfect, impossible crime—Jazz takes it, little realizing that she is a pawn in a conspiracy that could destroy Artemis itself.

"Narrated by a kick-ass leading lady, this thriller has it all—a smart plot, laugh-out-loud funny moments, and really cool science. A four-star read."—Library Journal (starred review)

"This exciting, whip-smart thrill-ride boasts a wonderful cast of characters, a wide cultural milieu and the appeal of a striking young woman as the main character.... One of the best science fiction novels of the year."—Booklist

"The sophisticated world-building incorporates politics and economics, as well as scientifically plausible ways for a small city to function on the lunar surface. The independent, wisecracking lead could easily sustain a series. Weir leavens the hard SF with a healthy dose of humor."—Publishers Weekly
