Android’s Dream Accolade

The literary site Bookgasm declares The Android’s Dream one of the five best science fiction books of 2006:
Straight, fun sci-fi adventures are hard to come by these days, and Scalzi has done an awesome job with this one, with great characters, plotting and dialogue wrapped up by a plot that always stays 10 steps ahead of the readers.
Neat. Congratulations also to my pals David Louis Edelman and Toby Buckell, whose books made this list as well.
Fun trivia fact: Bookgasm posted this list at 8:19 am; I found it at 8:24 and posted this a couple of minutes later. This is my ego search kung fu, and it is strong.
Beware Scalzi-san. He is versed in the ways of typing and Google combined. His ego-search-fu is most powerful.
Whoo-hoo! I recieved TAD as one of my favorite Christmas gifts! Can’t wait to start that baby!
Congrats, surely thy googling powers have grown. Of course, now that you’ve had intermittant positive reinforcement, the urge to googlefu will be stronger. Resist. Resist, I say, before Athena speaks the lines, “Mommy, what’s wrong with Daddy? He doesn’t leave his computer anymore.”
Just finished reading TAD, Oh about half an hr ago. Good Read! God has surely blessed you with a purpose in life…that purpose is to keep me entertained.
It’s true, Sam. However, hopefully, not just you.
Nope, me too. Just finished about ten minutes ago – thanks for letting me live in such a fun universe for a few days! Now it’s the latest issue of mental_floss for dessert, then off to sleep, perchance to dream…
Congrats to you too, John. Please keep publishing new hardcover novels every year, if only so I have an automatic present to get my Dad every Hanukkah. :-)
I’m on it!
