Description

In a universe of harsh interstellar conflict, the practice of interspecies diplomacy—when possible—is important. So being a Colonial Union officer attached to an interplanetary diplomatic mission sometimes means taking a fall. Literally.

John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War was one of the most popular SF debut novels of the last decade; its sequels are The Ghost Brigades, The Last Colony,and Zoe’s Tale. Other novels include The Android’s Dream and Agent to the Stars. His collection of material from his weblog The Whatever, Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded, won the Hugo Award in 2009. He won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2006, and was elected President of the Science Fiction Writers of America in 2010.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Customer Reviews

Short story

Not noted in the description is that this is just a short story. Good, and probably worth the buck, but not a new novel.

EDIT: Also hilarious.

Fun short story

Absolutely worth the $0.99 cost. I'd buy one of these a week from Scalzi, no problem.

Worth every penny

Fun little short story in Scalzi's Old Man's War universe. Not necessary to know the universe to read this story however.
