    Good to hear (not about DEVOLUTION, which was a DNF for me), but that it's a great read. I'll probably start it after my current read, Kepne's new one, YOU LOVE ME.

    I was just at Costco and couldn’t pass up a 1st edition trade HC of Weir’s new one for sixteen bucks and change. I’m still holding off on a full-priced signed trade HC in hopes of the Sub Press S/L, but this cheap Costco one will make for a great reading copy so I don’t have to wait to read this anticipated book until the Sub Press edition.

    I just started this last night, enjoying it very much. Read the new Timothy Zahn Star Wars book before that.

    I am reading one to two chapters a night, currently about 100 pages in, and am loving it so far. As long as it does not go off the rails this will be a home run for me.

    Bill confirmed today on Facebook that they are doing Project Hail Mary, so hopefully we won't have to wait for too long.

    I received a shipping notice on my signed UK edition from Waterstones.

    I don't remember buying this, so it's a pleasant surprise/reminder!

    Good reviews on Amazon so far.

    I read the first chapter last night. It has plenty of time to go off the rails but the first chapter is fantastic!

    In “Project Hail Mary,” by Andy Weir, a former science teacher is the planet’s only hope.

    Received my signed copy from Books A Million today. This is the second, and will probably be my last purchase from them. Shipped unprotected in what is basically a cardboard bag and the packer just dropped the book in. This resulted in the dust jacket sliding down causing the bottom portion of the dust jacket being crinkled. This will test Mr. Hocker's theory that the Martian was a fluke for the author. If this release is closer to Artemis I will probably walk away from the author as well.
