The first review of The Android’s Dream comes from industry bible Publishers Weekly, and it’s good. They call it a “swashbuckling satire of interstellar diplomacy” and say “With plenty of alien gore to satisfy fans of military SF and inventive jabs at pretend patriotism and self-serving civil service, Scalzi delivers an effervescent but intelligent romp.”
Mmmm… I romp. Effervescently! I mean, I always knew that, but it’s good to see that others recognize it too. People often say as I walk by, “there goes one effervescent romper.” It’s what I always dreamed of being, as a little boy. But then, what little boy doesn’t?
Remember that if you’re in the mood for a bit of effervescent romping yourself, that I’m giving away a copy of The Android’s Dream this weekend. It’s not too late to make your claim on it.
