Praise for "Old Man's War" "Though a lot of SF writers are more or less efficiently continuing the tradition of Robert A. Heinlein, Scalzi's astonishingly proficient first novel reads like an original work by the late grand master...The novel's tone is right on target, too--sentimentality balanced by hardheaded calculation, know-it-all smugness moderated by innocent wonder. This virtuoso debut pays tribute to SF's past while showing that well-worn tropes still can have real zip when they're approached with ingenuity." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Solid...[Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise." --"San Francisco"" Chronicle" "" "Thought-provoking!" --"Entertainment Weekly" "" "Smartly conceived and thoroughly entertaining, "Old Man's War" is a splendid novel." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"John Scalzi is the author of 'The Ghost Brigades (Old Man's War)', published 2007 under ISBN 9780765354068 and ISBN 0765354063.
