Anyone ever read "An Agent To The Stars" or "Old Man's War"? I just finished "Agent to the Stars" and it was wonderful. I highly reccomend it.

I'm a huge, huge fan of his Old Man's War series. To be honest, I think a lot of McCaffrey fans would like it--has that feel. Intelligent, but not dry and overly analytical, fun but not fluff. Good characters, interesting world, good plot.

I also follow his blog: http://whatever.scalzi.com/

I've read them both. And his blog is most excellent.

It might be noteworthy to say he's now the current President of the SFWA. (If his awesome books and awesome blog weren't enough he's now being presidential 'n stuff...)
