I've read pretty much everything by Scalzi.  I like the new series as well

He's going to be at a local bookstore mile from my house in a few weeks. That's what the sign up is for at the top of the page

Old Man's War was good.  I still have a copy.

Redshirts was bad Star Trek fan fiction.  Winning a "hugo" for this showed how irrelevant the award became over time.

Any Star Trek novel that has been written to date, fan fiction or not, is not worthy of (what used to be) a Hugo award.
