Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive–and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills–and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit–he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Em coletânea inédita de contos de ficção científica, grandes nomes da literatura mostram até onde somos capazes de ir para mudar o mundo Para alguns, a tecnologia é o prenúncio do fim do mundo. Para outros, é apenas o começo de uma nova era. Renomado escritor de ficção científica, autor dos best-sellers Matéria escura e Recursão, Blake Crouch convidou grandes nomes da literatura contemporânea para traçar histórias audaciosas que mergulham nos desdobramentos que os avanços tecnológicos acarretam à humanidade. Em “Summer Frost”, Crouch traz uma trama marcante que desafia nossa noção de humanidade enquanto assistimos à obsessão de uma programadora de videogames por uma de suas personagens. “Pele de emergência”, de N. K. Jemisin, explora a missão de um soldado em visita a uma Terra abandonada. Uma viagem potencialmente sem volta, mas pelos motivos mais inesperados. Em “Arca”, Veronica Roth mostra o poder das lembranças, que, quando coletadas e reunidas, são capazes de revelar o passado e também ajudam a construir o futuro. Amor Towles surpreende em “Você chegou ao seu destino” ao mergulhar na manipulação genética quando um casal se vê diante da possibilidade de decidir a trajetória de seu futuro bebê. “A última conversa”, de Paul Tremblay, é uma narrativa repleta de suspense que nos faz questionar os limites da consciência e de nossa identidade. Já “Randomizando”, de Andy Weir, fecha a obra com uma história eletrizante envolvendo cassinos, hackers e computação quântica. De potência criativa memorável, os contos desta coletânea se pautam em temas diversos, como inteligência artificial, colonização de outros planetas, engenharia genética e programação, para nos fazer encarar o que há de mais brutal e profundamente humano em nós e em nossa sociedade. Imersos em tamanhos medos, paixões, sonhos e ambições, vem à tona a complexidade de se estabelecer limites e de realizar escolhas diante da busca pelo futuro que desejamos.

In a one-of-a-kind graphic novel collaboration between the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian and the beloved illustrator behind Sarah’s Scribbles, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy team up to save the multiverse, from Wonderland to Neverland and Oz. Originating as fan fiction from the brilliant imagination of Andy Weir, now brought to vivid life by Sarah Andersen, Cheshire Crossing is a funny, breakneck, boundlessly inventive journey through classic worlds as you’ve never seen them before. Years after their respective returns from Wonderland, Neverland, and Oz, the trio meet here, at Cheshire Crossing—a boarding school where girls like them learn how to cope with their supernatural experiences and harness their magical world-crossing powers. But Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy—now teenagers, who’ve had their fill of meddling authority figures—aren’t content to sit still in a classroom. Soon they’re dashing from one universe to the next, leaving havoc in their wake—and, inadvertently, bringing the Wicked Witch and Hook together in a deadly supervillain love match. To stop them, the girls will have to draw on all of their powers . . . and marshal a team of unlikely allies from across the magical multiverse. Advance praise for Cheshire Crossing “Deliciously funny . . . a shrewd and spirited adaptation that will leave audiences hoping for another installment . . . Andersen’s delightful cartoon drawing style meshes perfectly with Weir’s prose, allowing the work to broaden its appeal beyond middle graders to young adults and adults.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
