The Evolution of The Martian by Andy Weir, Screenplay by Drew Goddard
by Gloria R. de los Reyes
The Story, Evolved.
Every story has a beginning, middle, and end, right? Well, not if they evolve across and beyond the page into something else: another medium or literary dimension, if you will. And those stories are the ones we like to feature here. How they were written, then, is not as important to us as the way they broke through the walls that surrounded them to cross-over into new worlds, which in today's story is something quite literal, reaching beyond the stars to land squarely ... on Mars.
