I don't want to know anything about the book in advance, but I'll definitely pick it up the day it comes out!

I wonder if the book is in the same universe as The Martian and The Expanse.

A bit of info on the film rights for Artemis:

Quote
Fox and New Regency have picked up movie rights to Andy Weir’s near-future thriller “Artemis.”

Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood are producing for Fox-based Genre Films.

Weir is the author of “The Martian,” which served as the basis for the Matt Damon movie of the same name. Kinberg and Sood also produced “The Martian.”

Short interview with Andy Weir about Artemis:

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/sci-fi-fantasy/the-martian-author-andy-weir-answer-4-questions-about-his-next-novel-artemis/

Contains some basic plot info; I wouldn't call them spoilers but YMMV.

I wonder if the book is in the same universe as The Martian and The Expanse.

The only real evidence we have of that is that "The Expanse" novels (James S.A. Corey) mention a ship named Mark Watney. But that novel also mentions a ship named John Galt. Both are fictional characters in our universe (Galt is from Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged".) That makes it more likely that Watney is a fictional character in the universe of "The Expanse" as well as in ours.
