Scalzi is ever so nicely tying the previous chapters/episodes together into a pretty decent narrative. This one was a spy story that brought together the Captain of the Clarke & Wilson while still keeping us tied with Abumwe. The baseball storyline was genius and being a baseball fan made it ev...

Ooh, this one is a good installment, full of intrigue, danger, and double-crossing.Also some baseball.This little story is all the things you probably enjoyed about the Old Man's War books, in one teeny little package."“Right, but they’re not rated for this sort of power output,” Basquez said. “T...

Set in the same universe as Old Man's War, Scalzi returns to familiar territory. Not having read all of the previous books in this series did not effected my understand in the least. I had no trouble keeping up. These are light fun reads, written in serial form. While the ending was not a cliffha...

I couldn't have asked for a better climax! The Human Division wraps up with its largest chapter (more than double the size of every other of the twelve previous chapters) and it needs the extra length. Relations between the Colonial Union, Earth and the Conclave shift so abruptly that I can't ima...

This is another excellent stand-alone story. It's a locked-room prisoner's dilemma thing, and it is worked out exceedingly well, story-wise.I really appreciated this story, and actually went through and read it a second time once I stopped being surprised. You should pick it up.Read if: You like ...

We get to see more of Lieutenant Harry Wilson doing his best as a tech specialist. But that's not all. This chapter contains an emotional story, something that truly paints...

After a lackluster episode 2 (the 2nd story in his 13 story episodic tale called The Human Division) Scalzi gets his mojo back in this one.We've got Harry Wilson as a strong supporting character but Ambassador Abumwe really steals the show in this episode (that does tie in the aforementioned epis...
