Signature only by Weir at The Emerald Table, a literature salon in North Beach, San Francisco. The Martian spent 26 weeks on various Bestseller Lists, including the NY Times. Small dent (caused by shelving) with associated crinkling at lower spine panel corner, else fine (unread) copy in fine jacket. A straight, square copy in near pristine condition. Weir studied orbital mechanics, astronomy, and the history of manned spaceflight to make the book as realistic as possible. Originally self-published on his own website in 2011 after being re-buffed by publishers, popular demand motived Weir to publish a Kindle version which recorded 35,000 downloads in a three month period. This drew the attention of Crown, who purchased the rights and re-published it in print in 2014. The novel has been optioned for The film version starring Matt Damon (originally cast for actor Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad) as marooned Martian astronaut Mark Whatney. "An excellent first novel.Weir laces the technical details with enough keen wit to satisfy hard science fiction fan and general reader alike [and] keeps the story escalating to a riveting conclusion."- Publisher's Weekly (starred review).
