JOHN SCALZI

THURSDAY, JUNE 13; 7 PM

JOHN SCALZI returns to the world he created in the Old Man’s War for his newest science fiction novel, The Human Division. Though it can stand alone and will serve as a great starting point for those new to Scalzi’s series, The Human Division follows the events of The Last Colony. The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance – an alliance against the Colonial Union. They’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. The choice isn’t obvious or easy as they struggle to preserve the unity of the human race. According to RT Book Reviews Top Pick, "Scalzi’s talent and humor really come through in this story, which will be enjoyed by fans of the series as well as new readers."

Scalzi has also written Fuzzy Nation and Redshirts. He lives in Ohio with his family.
