The Martian
NY, Crown, (2014). The advance reading copy of the novel that Weir initially self-published as an e-book, making this the first "physical" edition of a book that previously existed only in digital -- virtual -- format. Scarce; we've only seen this one copy. Fine in wrappers. Together with the slightly more common advance U.K. edition [Del Rey (2014)]. The U.S. edition lists the publishing history as a 2011 e-book; the U.K. edition claims it was published on Amazon in 2012. This 2014 edition became a New York Times bestseller and is being released as a Ridley Scott film in 2015, starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain. [#031771] SOLD
