JOHN SCALZI

THURSDAY, JUNE 7; 7 PM @ The Greene

JOHN SCALZI will introduce his new novel, Red Shirts, which may very well be the science fiction comedy of the year. It features Ensign Andrew Dahl, who is a redshirt, but he doesn’t know it. He reports to his post on the Universal Union’s flagship Intrepid and is confused and concerned when his coworkers disappear every time a senior officer shows up looking for ensigns for an away team. Often those ensigns end up dead. Dahl and a few of his fellow ensigns decide that it’s about time they figure out what exactly is happening on board the Intrepid.

With the laws of space travel, time, and physics thrown out the window, Scalzi gives readers a thoroughly laugh-out-loud novel. With roots going back to Douglas Adams and beyond, this subgenre is on the rise again, and John Scalzi is leading the charge. TOR
