The second book of bestselling author Andy Weir will be released in 2016. After the huge success of The Martian his next Zhek is very strongly discussed around the society of sci-fi readers.


At the end of the next year the movie, based on The Martian, will premiered on the big screen with Ridley Scott as director and Matt Damon as Mark Watney. The expectations will be huge for the next book of Andy Weir.

“I do have a deadline for the first draft of Zhek, and that’s August 1st, 2015,” told the author exclusively for our blog . “I suspect it will be out (on the market) in early to mid 2016.”

The big question is what kind of story Andy Weir is preparing right now.

“Zhek is actually an epic, and I mean that in the literary sense. It’s a very large and detailed story that will probably take several entire books to tell. It’s by far the most complex and detailed story I’ve ever come up with,” confessed the writer in the blog of his web page two and a half years ago.

Parts of Zhek was published in Andy’s site as a series of chapters, the same way as The Martian was introduced.
