  1. The Android’s Dream

    HANDMAID RESTORED

    So TAD was not only an homage to Philip K. Dick, but Margaret Atwood, as well? :)

  2. honugirl1 – Tuscaloosa, AL – NJ native, current AL resident, Hawaiian girl at heart. Passionate about science (particularly geoscience), education, and science communication.

    Being a redhead, I would definitely buy DAMN REDHEADS RIOT, sight unseen, because, well, we do riot, damnit!

    (We’re also an alien species who will eventually take over the world, but that’s a different topic…)

  3. Say, Scalzi, since the date of the tour approaches with ever flightful feet, what name did you ever decide on to call the tour?

  4. “HOT LONELY CATS”

    Sigh…as a jury member for a local SF/F literary award, I have read WAY too many stories that could easily have had this title.

  5. Patrick Johanneson – Canada, eh – Patrick Johan­neson writes sci­ence fic­tion and fan­tasy, works elbow-deep in WordPress code, teaches judo, and volunteers at a small indie cin­ema. He lives in Man­i­toba with his wife Kathleen.

    DAMN REDHEADS RIOT would also be an awesome name for a rock band.

  6. Damn! Someone beat me to the Dave Barry reference. I was going to say “Taste Other Angst” or “Holy Cola Tents” for band names.

  7. Given the plot, I think “GAS THREATENS TOT” would have been a better name for The Android’s Dream.

    Clearly a glitch in the anagram generator (please, please, please tell me you used an anagram generator, and you didn’t spend hours coming up with all of these on your own…)
