The Scalzi Creative Sampler

This is another one of my “put it up there to establish a permanent link to it” things. In this case, this entry is an index of the creative work I have online that people can access for free.

Here’s what’s on offer; this entry will be updated from time to time, when more of my stuff goes up.

* Agent to the Stars — a complete novel, published in limited edition hardcover by Subterranean Press in 2005, and in an upcoming edition from Tor (likely in 2008).

* The first chapter of The Android’s Dream, published by Tor in October of 2006.

* “The Sagan Diary,” audio version — an audio version of my 2007 novelette, set in the universe of the “Old Man” books (and occurring sequentially between the books The Ghost Brigades and The Last Colony. Read by Mary Robinette Kowal, Elizabeth Bear, Karen Meisner, Ellen Kushner, Helen Smith and Cherie Priest.

* Subterranean Magazine, Issue #4 (pdf link) — An issue of Subterranean Magazine guest-edited by me. Featuring stories by Allen Steele, Jo Walton, Nick Sagan, Elizabeth Bear and many others.

* “Alien Animal Encounters” — a short story published in Strange Horizons magazine, in October, 2001

* “Missives from Possible Futures #1: Alternate History Search Results” — A short story published by Subterranean Magazine Online, February, 2007

* “Pluto Tells All” — A short story published by Subterranean Magazine Online, May, 2007

* Music For Headphones — My album of electronica

Saturn Speaks” — A single electronica track, based on recorded sounds from the planet Saturn.

  1. Darn. Now I suppose I no longer have an excuse to have never read anything you’ve written except this blog (oh, and the first line of Android’s Dream which I saw in a Barnes & Noble, but was too poor to buy).

  2. Aaaaw! You’re nice!

    The Sagan Diary, which we had ordered, finally arrived yesterday and I didn’t want to listen to the audio version before reading the book, so now I can listen to it when I get home, without having to search for it first.


  3. Somehow I had not seen “Missives from Possible Futures” before. The number 1155 has never been so funny.

  4. Yes, I saw that on the store’s blog.

    I wonder if I can get Tor to put in an Australian leg of my book tour.

  5. John, “put in an Australian leg of my book tour”

    For some reason, I was reminded of John Perry’s first mission on Coral with this one.

    “We’ll just attach this leg, here. Activate the nanos…”

  6. I’ve been spending all morning listening to the electronica album. I was abit skeptical at first, but you blew my doubt out of the water.I absolutely love it. Your mix of world beats and instruments combined with what seems to be raw emotion gets a permanent link on my blog and a place in my playlists.


  7. You know what’s *really* awesome?
    I bought “Agent to the Stars” from an Amazon seller, used. When it arrived, and I opened it, what stared back at me? The author’s signature! Man.
