Word Nerdery and Literary Shenanigans
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 & forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded & completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—& 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—& 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?

The year is 1453. Constantinople is the impregnable jewel of the East. It has stood as the greatest Christian city for a millennium as hordes of would-be invaders have met their defeat at its walls.
But now Mehmet the Conqueror, the youthful and ambitious Sultan of the Ottoman Empire intends against formidable odds to lay siege against the city. To him and his loyal inner circle, the mere existence of Constantinople is a curse to Islam. The city of the infidels has not fallen in eight hundred years despite the Islamic empire’s attempts to bring down its walls. To capture the last capitol of the Roman Empire and take on the mantle of the Romans would make Mehmet master of both East and West.
