June 6th: To rise again at a decent hour/Joshua Ferris

July 11th: Orphan #8/Kim van Alkemade

Out of this World: Science Fiction/Fantasy book group

 

May 12: The Martian : a novel / Andy Weir.

Astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, 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.

June 9: Seveneves / Neal Stephenson.

A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space.
