Oh my glob, you guys, there's going to be a new Old Man's War novel: The Human Division

Whatever.
My reaction can best be summed up in two gifs and a picture:


If you can't tell, I am a big fan of John Scalzi's Old Man's War series. Now on to the details. According to Scalzi, The Human Division won't be "strictly a novel", but rather thirteen episodic stories that if read together, tells a story arc. Essentially, it's going to be akin to a thirteen episode season of a TV show, but in written form. Interesting, especially if this idea is successful enough to warrant further seasons. Hey, it worked for Joss Whedon and his Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic series, which acts as a "virtual" eighth and ninth season of the show.

I'm certainly excited and can't wait until it comes out!

      I'm planning on doing a bigger post about the OMW universe soon.

  2. Is it bad that I've never read him, any good?

  3. I've really enjoyed the Old Man's War so far, so it's nice to see another installment. The short story route could be cool, I'd rather just a straight forward novel, but I'm sure he'll pull it off. Honestly, wasn't a big fan of the Sagan Diary though, but I'm looking forward to this one.

    And to Dan and Fran, Scalzi is solid, fast-reading and fun military sci-fi for sure. Old Man's War is worth checking out even if you don't go further into the series.

  4. What an interesting idea. It sounds like Starship Troopers.
