Hey, look at this: The Collapsing Empire is a finalist in this year's Goodreads Choice Awards in Science Fiction. Go vote for it -- or one of the other candidates if you prefer that book instead:

Every year I team up with Jay & Mary's Book Center, my local independent bookstore, to offer signed and personalized books for the holidays. That time has come around again, and I'm happy to offer that service again, for books (and audio) of mine that you'd like to give as gifts or would like for yourself.

Follow the link below for all the details on how to order, and feel free to share this with anyone you think would appreciate knowing. Thanks!

Did you know I used to be a film critic? I was, for the Fresno Bee newspaper, in central California. I was back in Fresno a couple of weeks ago visiting friends, and was interviewed by arts reporter (and my excellent pal) Donald Munro, about my days in Fresno and also my writing in general. Here's a link to the interview (which also hints at some big news coming down the pike... soonish).

Also, if you're in central California, check out the rest of Donald's site and follow it. It's the arts and culture coverage you want for Fresno and beyond.

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!
