How do you tell the difference? I have a copy of this and just pulled it out. It looks professional. I guess I always assumed that anything that had on-disc printing was a non-CDR. I feel naive suddenly.

Robert Scott Thompson/James Johnson- Forgotten Places. Serene, melancholy music. Gorgeous and very Harold Budd like.
Just finished "The Martian" a fun read about an astronaut that get left behind on Mars & has to try and survive on his own until a possible rescue. The book gets very technical about things like trying to grow crops, making water, scrubbing CO2, power consumption, etc. All the tech talk makes it feel very real, very suspenseful. The timeframe is the near future so all the engineering & tech is current.
The main character is and engineer & a botanist and those skills come in handy as he tears apart equipment, creates new tools, seals & re-seals habitats, rovers & tents. You really root for him throughout the ordeal.
