It wasn’t that long ago that I read Old Man’s War by John Scalzi and fell in love with his kind of storytelling. It’s a little whimsy, a little action, and a lot of well-paced, interesting material in my opinion. Fortunately, Old Man’s War was the first of an entire series of books set in the same universe. The Ghost Brigades is the second book in the series.
Later this month, Scalzi will be releasing a serial novel of sorts entitled The Human Division that will be released in pieces over the course of 13 consecutive weeks. I want to be able to read those pieces as they come out so finishing The Ghost Brigades as well as the other two books in the series is imperative to start 2013 for me.
