First Review For The Mallet of Loving Correction

It’s from the San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review, which says:

Scalzi is thoughtful, witty, and occasionally profane, and he pulls no punches… an entertaining and thought-provoking read.


Those of you who have preordered the book may have your copies already, and Subterranean Press has copies in stock if you just can’t wait. Otherwise, the book officially ships one week from today, also not-at-all coincidentally the 15th anniversary of Whatever. Hooray!

By John Scalzi

I enjoy pie.

That Fateful Knock on the door came today. The book looks great! The cover art works, though part of me wishes you’d gone with a picture of you, ‘shopped into an angel.

Got my #270. Nice solid binding and everything. Now I’m debating getting an ecopy so I don’t screw up the pretty hardcover one I have. I’m sure John wouldn’t want me to spend the money though ;^P

Mine showed up today! Wheee! And I got copy # 300 of the limited edition. Nice round number.

First impression – this is a -thick- book! I halfway expected something slender and arty. This is one weighty tome! I was halfway planning to re-read ‘Redshirts’ but that is now on hold for several evenings.

That’s either a signature, or a schematic of Vulcan’s solar system . . . not quite sure which (I’m not up on Trek lore, and with the reboot, it would not matter if I were).

I’ll have a hard time convincing people that reads “John”, let alone “Scalzi”. Unfortunately, I will not be reading it for at least a few weeks yet, but I am looking forward to it.

One thing . . . I was hoping for a prime number copy, but my life is full of disappointments.

My son is deeply engrossed in his copy now. I haven’t had a chance to get near it yet. It can be difficult to buy gifts for older sons, and this one was a big hit. Thanks for supplying a well-appreciated birthday gift.
