Major props to Andy Weir – The Martian opened to a $55 million box office this weekend. His is a very inspiring story – he originally released The Martian as a serial on his website, only publishing it as a novel when his readers asked for it for their ease of reading. Now it’s been turned into a hugely successful movie and the book is a New York Time best seller.
Here’s a great interview of Andy by Adam Savage (of Mythbusters fame).
Congrats on your success Andy!
Two games that will haunt the Angels all postseason: Houston Street’s blown save against the Astros when up 3-0 entering the ninth looking for a sweep, and the game they gave up 7 unearned runs trying to sweep the A’s. We win those games, we’re in the playoffs.
Scioscia’s last game as Angels managers?
Well, truthfully, I’ve been working on this book for a couple years now. I’m putting this out there to keep myself honest. If I still haven’t finished within a reasonable amount of time of writing this, I’m slacking.
The book will be called Killing the Time Machine. It’s the first in a series of five novellas set at Brookhollow Home for Mental Health where our narrator (Marcus Peterson) resides. He tells the stories of fellow residents and swears that they are true. The first is the tale of Henry Graves, who claims to have traveled back in time to prevent a book from being written. Is it true, or are they both insane?
I will continue to update as the work continues.
