    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."
    "Fuzzy Nation modern version of Fuzzy Sapien"

    What did you love best about Fuzzy Nation?

    I really liked this story. It was fun and the humor was right up my alley.


    Have you listened to any of Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to several Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi's other books. I have enjoyed every one of them. The stories are hilarious and Wil does a great job as narrator.

  • Year Zero: A Novel

    Story

    Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it's a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. And boy, do they have news. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on humanity's music ever since "Year Zero" (1977 to us), when American pop songs first reached alien ears. This addiction has driven a vast intergalactic society to commit the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang.

    Robert says: "Fantastic Performance by Hodgman"
    "Hilarious"

    What did you love best about Dead Beat?

    I love the Dresden books, I have read them all and I can't imagine anyone else reading them but James Marsters. He could read the dictionary and I would listen.


    What other book might you compare Dead Beat to and why?

    I don't think I can compare Jim Butcher's stories to anything else. There are a lot of good writers out there that I enjoy but no one thinks like Jim Butcher.


    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to James Marsters do other Dresden books. I would like to know what else he has done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There is a scene that makes me laugh every time I think of it.
