Starter Villain Review at Publishers Weekly

John Scalzi

And it’s a pretty damn good one, too. An excerpt:

“In this clever, fast-paced thriller, Hugo Award winner Scalzi (The Kaiju Preservation Society) subverts classic supervillain tropes with equal measures of tongue-in-cheek humor and common sense. Scalzi balances all the double-crosses and assassination attempts with ethical quandaries, explorations of economic inequality, and humor… The result is a breezy and highly entertaining genre send-up.”

The review is up at the PW site, but be warned that it has mild spoilers for the book content.

I know of another trade review that will be up soon, and I’ll post about that when I can. In the meantime, a nice way to start the official review season for the book!

  1. Thanks for the snippet. I won’t read the full review as I’d like to avoid spoilers. But congrats on this “fresh out of the gate” review.

  2. I just finished the e-arc (Thanks Tor!). It was really fun. Especially the cats.

  3. I’m with @Louis Sivo inasmuch as I don’t want spoilers before I read the book. But from what I have read, this is gonna be fun!
