Holy crap!

Just in case you have not already had your fill of The Martian, there is a short prequel out there, Diary of an AssCan: A Mark Watney Short Story, by Andy Weir of course. In this one, Watney learns that he has been selected, applies some very PG profanity, then goes on to some of the prep. It is adorable, and somewhat interesting. The sheer brevity keeps it from achieving escape velocity, but it will lift you off the pad a safe distance, definitely worth a few minutes of your time if you enjoyed its larger sibling. And there is a nice slice of irony as Watney considers the journey ahead.

How big was this book and then the movie?
