Andy Weir recommends
(Ex-Heroes, book 1)
"Well, if you’re not reading Peter Clines’s books, you should be..."
The Calculating Stars (2018)
(Lady Astronaut, book 1)
Mary Robinette Kowal
"The Calculating Stars is a wonderful, scientifically accurate view of what might have been. Kowal masters both science and historical accuracy in this alternate history adventure."
"It's not often I plow through a book in two days. But Blake Crouch's action-packed, brilliantly unique 'Recursion' had me up late and shirking responsibilities until I had devoured the last page. A fantastic read."
The Last Human (2020)
"Aliens, adventure, mystery, and big ideas in a thoroughly fresh package."
