OK. John Scalzi is better than Heinlein was, when writing about space, about people, about science, and about war in space; I don't know how he does it but I hope he keeps it up.

He's also appearing here in the Beaverton Powell's Books on WEDNESDAY... and I've already got two competing things to do then.


Anyhwey, just finished reading The Last Colony and I am a melty puddle of SF bliss.

Even if these last two didn't reach directly into my soul and drag it through the stark, unfiltered sunlight in space to bleach out some of the dark bits, like the first one did.

*turns green with envy*

I haven't even set my eyes on a copy of The Ghost Brigades or The Last Colony yet, but I adored Old Man's War. Really looking forward to reading those next two. (And any more that he may bring out, for that matter.)

And yeah, Old Man's War is better than Starship Troopers (which, note, still rocks), precisely because it doesn't beat you over the head with the politics constantly. IMO, of course.

I also got The Sagan Diaries in the same shipment. I devoured that one, and then The Last Colony, after I got off of CoH from sleepiness at 8:30 last night. And it DID eat my soul.

Scalzi put his whole hour talk at Google online on his Anyhow blog.

Oh yeah. And asleep at 1:30am and awake at 7:30am and I need to stop this nonsense.

    Interestingly, the other day I learned of another good reason I left.
