Agent to the Stars (it is available online at http://www.scalzi.com/agent/) is another brilliant book by John Scalzi. A junior Agent in Hollywood is contracted by a race of smelly intelligent cubes to better their image before breaking the news to the Human race. Of course he makes them Stars!
According to John he wrote this as training before doing real books like Old Man’s War.
I said it before, and i’ll say it again, John writes as the Master of Science Fiction he is. This story is more of a comedy, it is witty, catching and I Love it!
Write more, Please!
