    The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) – John Scalzi

      Truth be told, I loved Old Man’s War … not necessarily the whole series mind you, but definitely Book 1.  It’s long been a staple and one that I’ve gone back to every now and then.  Unfortunately for me, however (and probably somewhat in the minority) I didn’t love Red Shirts which I thought […]
