After a dust storm causes his team to evacuate Mars, astronaut Mark Watney must learn to survive the red planet’s inhumane terrain. The Martian, a debut novel by Andy Weir, is a great read for fans of hard SF, as Watney is able to stay alive only by attacking problem after problem with scientific precision and ingenuity.

 

Spademan is a garbageman – his own term for hit man. In a dystopian New York, Spademan is hired to kill an evangelist’s daughter, but nothing is as it seems. Adam Sternbergh drags the noir genre into the near future with Shovel Ready, his debut novel.
