This is the online home of author John Scalzi. That’s me. I mostly write science fiction and non-fiction.

My life, distilled.

Books I have written, and other creative projects I’ve worked on.

This site has a disclaimer – and comment rules.

The site is visited and/or read remotely by tens of thousands of people daily, and my Twitter account is followed by even more. Publicists: here’s how to exploit them. Also includes Blurb guidelines and my policy on unpublished/self-published work.

I’m available for interviews, appearances and writing work. Read the details.

  1. Good Morning. Just found your book on the table of my spouse’s things. I took a browse over the dust jacket. Just dropped in to see what this is. And this is great!

  2. Hey, just wanted to remind you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Tell Krissy to wear her pink ribbon.

    Love ya Brother

  3. Hello John,
    Greetings from Busselton in Western Australia.
    I’ve just discovered a couple of your books in the local library – LOVED The Android’s Dream and have just galloped through Old Man’s War – brilliant idea! I’m going looking for more of your books in the state library catalogue. And oh yes, I’ll recommend you to my friends. Keep writing, please!

  4. Just wanted to let you know that I just realized I hadn’t had any Whatever updates recently in Bloglines. I was subscribed to the http://www.scalzi.com/whatever/atom.xml feed. I switched to the http://scalzi.com/whatever/?feed=rss2 and lo, there were posts!

    There are 656 Bloglines users subscribed to atom.xml but only 36 subscribed to rss2. You might want to manually edit your atom.xml file and add a mock post asking people to switch to the rss2 feed instead (or I guess fix the atom.xml feed).

  5. I read most of your intro about the “Creation Museum”… the horseshit references… a bit too intolerant for me. Do you also have the balls to attack other non-passive religions / beliefs (e.g., Islam) with equal fervor, or does your hunting license limit you to only bagging Christians?

  6. Quoting: “A good rule of thumb is to comment as if the person to whom you are commenting is standing in front of you, is built like a linebacker, and has both a short temper and excellent legal representation”

    Comment: “Love your site, points of view, and style.” [Extending my arm for either a Handshake or Hug, whichever is most acceptable the least threatening, both physically and legally.]

  7. Thanks for wrtting an amazing book. I can only listen to them from Audible (no time to read) and wish your other books where there also. If you keep it up I’m sure Mr. Card will be trying to get you bumped off. Does the guy in OMW ever catch up to his dead/live wife after the 10 years is over? If not can you email me a short line saything they lived happily ever after?

  8. Would you know the ETA on the audio? If not no worries, if TLC is as good as OMW it will be well worth the wait.

    I asked my boss if it would be ok if I could read while I drive (UPS driver) and he said no.

  9. I would have to agree with your boss there.

    No date on the audio for Last Colony, but if I had to guess, I’d say later in the year. The audio for The Ghost Brigades, which immediately follows Old Man’s War (but doesn’t have John Perry in it), will be out in a couple of months.

  10. Well keep up the great work, I look forward to hearing all of them. So tough to find an SF writer that can keep me interested. And as a side note, its really cool that you answer your fans in this way.

    As soon as Audible gets em I’ll buy em!!

    Are you ever going to do a book signing in NY?
