The Android’s Dream — Free for Soldiers!

As he did with his previous books Old Man’s War and The Ghost Brigades, author John Scalzi and his publisher, Tor, are providing free e-copies of his novel The Android’s Dream to any soldiers currently serving abroad.

With permission from Tor, I am making an electronic version of The Android’s Dream available to US servicefolks serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and other points overseas. This e-book version is an .rtf version of the text (about 900kb) I turned into Tor (i.e., a few copyedit flubs here and there) which is easily modifiable for whatever thing folks in the field have to look at text through. This e-book version is free to them, and given with thanks for their service.

The details are at the link above. If you know anyone currently on the front who could use a rip-roaringly fun book as a distraction from the day to day, send them Scalzi’s way!

For more info about the book, you can read my review here. Even if you’re not in the military, I’d definitely recommend wandering to your local bookstore, dodging the lines for Harry Potter (yeah, they’re already forming), and picking this one up.

    All three are excellent books, but they’re best read in sequence. Get ’em all, or at least start with Old Man’s War.
