JOIN US TODAY TO WELCOME John Scalzi!
Why Scalzi ‘s work is the best!
The hard-boiled detective novel meets a scifi dystopia/robot-ish/badass thrill ride. Scalzi took the genre cliches– the “I do this my own way” FBI agent, the rookie thrown into the deep end, the evil tycoon with more power than decency– and flipped a switch by placing them in this imaginative and well constructed universe.
Agent to the Stars
So what would happen if all the TV shows and radio programs we’ve been broadcasting out into space have actually been educating an alien race?
This premise in Scalzi’s hands is hilarious. Snappy dialogue and likable characters make this book a good introduction to Scalzi’s fiction.
You’re reading along, you think you’re smart and know where the story is going and BAM you’re heading in a completely different direction. Hang on it’s an entertaining and riveting ride. You’ll be chuckling all the way.
Happy Reading and make sure to come to the event!
