Product description

Review

"Gripping and surpassingly original. It's Starship Troopers without the lectures. It's The Forever War with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true." --Cory Doctorow on Old Man's War

"Astonishingly proficient...This virtuoso debut pays tribute to SF's past while showing that well-worn tropes still can have real zip when they're approached with ingenuity." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Old Man's War

"Solid...[Scalzi] sidesteps most of the cliches of military science fiction, delivers fast-paced scenes of combat and pays attention to the science underpinning his premise." --San Francisco Chronicle on Old Man's War

"Smartly conceived and thoroughly entertaining, Old Man's War is a splendid novel." --Cleveland Plain Dealer
