OMG! I love Scalzi.
Read Red Shirts, a hilarious parody of Star Trek red shirts. This was the first book of his I read, and I loved it.
Fuzzy Nation takes place in the Old Man’s War universe but is a standalone book, and is excellent. This was the second book of his I read, and it is very enjoyable.
His new series (Collapsing Empire) has been good so far with the first book. The second book is coming out in October and I cannot wait!
My only complaint is that sometimes his books cross back and forth between serious and goofy. Like sometimes the solutions to the problem du jour are kind of a cornball solution you might see in a mediocre Star Trek episode. But, it is a minor quibble, the vast majority of the time he’s a true pleasure to read.
