Book Description

The eleventh episode of The Human Division, John Scalzi's new thirteen-episode novel in the world of his bestselling Old Man's War. Beginning on January 15, 2013, a new episode of The Human Division will appear in e-book form every Tuesday.

A secret backdoor meeting between Ambassador Ode Abumwe and the Conclave’s Hafte Sorvalh turns out to be less than secret as both of their ships are attacked. It’s a surprise to both teams—but it’s the identity of the attacker that is the real surprise, and suggests a threat to both humanity and The Conclave.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giving life to a tired cliché March 26, 2013
Format:Audible Audio Edition|Verified Purchase
This episode takes one of the oldest clichés from science fiction - usually bad science fiction - wraps it in Scalzi's brilliant bittersweet humor, and delivers a thought provoking story about the nature of "humanity."

5.0 out of 5 stars This series just wound up to 17 out if 10 March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm already a Scalzi fan, but this part of The Human Division, to paraphrase spinal tap, just wound his story up to 17.

2.0 out of 5 stars A short story for his price November 13, 2013
By Sharon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was all excited to get a "book" from one of my favorite authors to find myself reading a short story that I did not find as good as he usually writes. It struck me he was writing the serious to make money. Well it turned me off in buying a future book of his even if it is a "real one".

3.0 out of 5 stars Thin excuse for a serial--just more money July 10, 2013
By Ridman
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Old Man's War was great. This is much thinner on plot and substance--and by that, I mean the whole series, not just this installment. Pretty good way to skin the customer for $15, vs. $3.99 for a book, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but too short June 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good but too short, these short chapters are great but I really wish it was another great book series. I really love Scalzi writing style. Soon as you get into the story line it's over. Guess I'm just not ready to stop reading when the story stops. Looking forward to the next chapter/ book.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME SCI-FI! May 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
AWESOME SCI-FI!!!! This is a great story that gets deeper and deeper! Quasi-realistic future scenario based on the classic Sci-Fi Action story of the misinterpreted misfit hero, alien menace, future weapons and deep space warfare! Everything from Nanobots to battle frigate fights to super weapons and enhanced soldiers! This series has it all!!!! Great character development and dialogue, not going to reveal anymore, cause I you have to read each installment yourself! Also not going to write individual reviews for each "episode" in the series, get real amazon! hahaha! If you like great Sci-Fi GET ON THIS!

Too short. Put all books in this series in one volume and it would be worth three books, not all listed.

I've all the chapters and would read this like a book rather than a short story. I've read other Scalzi books and I'm a fan. Read more

This is a review of the entire series rather than this book(let) itself. It's worth noting that I've enjoyed them all about equally. Read more

On its own good book. Incomplete storie for a series. I do like the Old Mans War series. No more words.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice buildup of the story
I am bit surprised that people found that this chapter did more than heighten the tension. It really does not eliminate any candidates for the bogey man. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a fan of the weekly release format.
I believe the weekly release forced Scalzi to make the sections more able to stand on their own. He did accomplish this, but to the detriment of the book as a whole. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good extension of the Old Man's War series
This builds on the ending of the Old Man's War series. Without having read that series It might be a bit confusing as not a lot of background information is presented.
