I just finished reading 'Agent to the Stars'. I borrowed it from the library because I enjoyed 'An Old Man's Wars.'

Very different. Very funny, I haven't laughed so much reading a book in years. Interestingly he wrote this novel as a 'practice novel'. He then put it online for free. http://www.scalzi.com/agent/. He earned $4000 over several years in voluntary contributions.

Now he is a published author it is published as a book (Subterranean Press). Definitely a fun read for me.
