New TGE Review, Plus Retailer Availability Update
A vastly rich tale set in a theocratic universe, The God Engines is a modern sci-fi classic, an intriguing examination of faith and worship and godhood. Intelligent and provocative, the narrative reminds me of a classic Twilight Zone episode, well-written, multi-leveled and rich with ideas. The God Engines is the best thing yet from John Scalzi and worthy of award consideration. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
And there you have it. Remember that you can read the first chapter of it here.
One problem that we’ve had with The God Engines is that it initially sold so quickly that retailers had a difficult time keeping it in stock; if you looked at the Amazon page for it, for example, it often said that it would be available in “3 to 6 weeks.” Well, Subterranean Press ordered up more printings and now they’ve made their way to retailers; Amazon now lists it as “in stock,” and you should be able to order it from your local bookseller. Remember also that Borders took an order of copies, so if you have a Borders in your neighborhood, it’s entirely possible you’ll find the book on the shelf there. Which is awesome. All of which is to say: Now available everywhere. Enjoy.
