The electronic edition of my novella The Dispatcher is an Amazon Deal of the Day today (10/19/17) in the US and Canada. So if you haven't gotten it yet and wanted it, today is a good day to make that buy!

Publishers Weekly reviews Don't Live For Your Obituary and likes it. Which is always a relief. Pull quote: "[Scalzi] writes accessibly and so commonsensically that this book should appeal to writers in all disciplines." And, well. I agree. The book is available for pre-order now and is shipping in December. I'll put the pre-order link into the comments.

Last week The Collapsing Empire was the #1 fiction audiobook in the country, which is pretty great. Thank you!

Today (September 22, 2017) Audible is making The Collapsing Empire a Deal of the Day, and you can get it (in the US) for under $3. So if you haven't gotten it by now, here's your chance!

I get asked a lot which books of mine people should read first. I get asked often enough that now I've written a guide to which work of mine make good "first reads." This covers my novels, novellas and collections, and you can find it here: https://whatever.scalzi.com/2017/09/10/which-john-scalzi-novel-should-i-read-first/

If you're in the Washington DC area, be advised I'll be participating in the National Book Festival the first weekend in September. I'll be reading and signing books. See you there!

Via my pal Ramez Naam, I find that Old Man's War is on Goodread's list of Top 50 Science Fiction Books, as chosen by ratings of Goodreads members. It's in there with some pretty good company, old and new, so if you're looking for something science fictional to read, this list isn't a bad place to start.

If you're a subscriber to Locus (or would like to be), I'm one of the two featured interviews this month. I discourse on writing, humor, my place in science fiction and why choosing a Grand Master might become a difficult thing soon. For those of you who have not heard of Locus before, check out their Web site at: http://www.locusmag.com/ It's an excellent resource if you want to be in the know about what's happening in science fiction and fantasy publishing.
