Reviews

"The Last Colony will kick your butt across the galaxy and make you care." --Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column, on The Last Colony "Scalzi's captivating blend of off-world adventure and political intrigue remains consistently engaging." --Booklist on The Last Colony "The sequel to Old Man's War combines taut military action with keen insights into the moral issues revolving around developing technologies. Scalzi has a finely tuned sense of balance between personal drama and the 'big picture' ... Highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review) on The Ghost Brigades "A mix of Starship Troopers and Universal Soldier, Ghost evokes awakening, betrayal, and combat in the best military sci-fi tradition." --Entertainment Weekly on The Ghost Brigades "An impressive piece of work." --Philadelphia Inquirer on The Ghost Brigades "Fast and deep...I like the galaxy this author's playing in, the characters he limns, the situations he's playing with, and I'm glad there's at least one more volume on the way." --San Diego Union-Tribune on The Ghost Brigades "In Heinleinesque fashion, the book is loaded with scenes of comradeship, isolation, ruthlessness and the protocols, which govern the lives of active-duty soldiers. But this is where Scalzi, famous for his blog 'The Whatever, ' surpasses Heinlein. Scalzi weaves in subtle discussions of humanity's growing fear of aging and our simultaneous attraction and repulsion to the Frankenstein-like creatures we are able to create." --San Antonio Express-News on The Ghost Brigades "Scalzi is a natural heir to Heinlein, and his second book in this series is a good old-fashioned space opera, which takes time to question the nature of free will." --St. Louis Press-Dispatch on The Ghost Brigades "Astonishingly proficient." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Old Man's War "Top-notch. His combat scenes are blood-roiling. His dialogue is suitably snappy and profane. And the moral and philosophical issues he raises... insert useful ethical burrs under the military saddle of the story." --The Washington Post on Old Man's War "Smartly conceived and thoroughly entertaining, Old Man's War is a splendid novel." --Cleveland Plain-Dealer The Last Colony will kick your butt across the galaxy and make you care.
