This morning I finished listening to the audio version of The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi. I'm a huge Scalzi fan and the first book of this series Old Man's War was quite possibly one of the most enjoyable sci-fi books I've ever read. Though I didn't much care for the naration (good naration, I think, is damn hard to do) the book was awesome. Scalzi's creative genius, humor, and expertise in geek lore mix together for a great story. Favorite quote:

"After watching Star Wars everyone wanted a lightsaber and was irritated that the technology for them didn't really exist. Everyone also agreed the Ewoks should all die."

Check out Scalzi's blog "Whatever"... it's a hoot!
