The Universal Appeal of John ScalziWhen I was first getting into sci-fi, I felt a bit of imposter syndrome. There was a sense that I had a whole lot of catching up to do with a genre that had been establishing itself for decades—with so-called founding fathers and massive lists of classics you had to experience before you die. But then I discovered a little listen called Old Man’s War, and with it, the wonderful, inviting world of John Scalzi. It had all the hallmarks that made the classics so compelling—but it also made me laugh, and think, and, most importantly, feel right at home in the wonderful, weird community this genre has created.
So, fellow listener, and (I hope) future fellow sci-fi nerd—I now welcome you into this genre the same way: through the incredible, vast universe of John Scalzi, a modern-day master of fun, irreverent, and versatile sci-fi.
