The second episode of The Human Division, John Scalzi's new thirteen-episode novel in the world of his bestselling Old Man's War. Beginning on January 15, 2013, a new episode of The Human Division will appear in e-book form every Tuesday.
Wildcat colonies are illegal, unauthorized and secret—so when an injured stranger shows up at the wildcat colony New Seattle, the colony leaders are understandably suspicious of who he is and what he represents. His story of how he's come to their colony is shocking, surprising, and might have bigger consequences than anyone could have expected.

Disappointing amount of content
The first part of this series felt like a good amount of content for $.99 (90 pages or so) and I picked this one up without a second thought. I should have looked at the description to see that the length had been severely reduced from the first installment (28 pages of real material).
Shame on me, I should have looked at the description and will do so in the future, but a warning to all that this installation is extremely short on content.
This episode of the series has a distinctly dark tone that appears to foreshadow some dire prospects for the continuing story. It has an intriguing format of an official recording's transcript that appears to record some things those being recorded would rather not have recorded.
I was disappointed at the length of this episode at first, but in comparing its length to the first episode, I remembered feeling the first was an excellent value for the price. So I think it's basically a wash in terms of value. We got a bonus for Episode 1, Episode 2 is a bit short, the rest appear to somewhere in between.
