Trapped on Mars for over a decade, Ryan Selkirk has long since abandoned any hope of return. The knowledge that other people are out there, somewhere, keeps his sanity intact, if threadbare. He performs his experiments, tends his garden, reads his Bible. Routine. Monotonous.Every twenty-six months, Mars and Earth are on opposite sides of the sun. During this time communication between them is impossible, and for two weeks Ryan feels like the last human in the universe. What if those two weeks passed and, instead of a scratchy message from Earth, Ryan was confronted with silence? A lot can go wrong sending messages between planets, and there's not a lot a lone astronaut can do to fix it. What if the silence became permanent, if Ryan found himself cut off from humanity, in mind as well as body, for the rest of his life? How could anyone cope with that?
