I also read Redshirts this past year. I loved it and had to read some more Scalzi. Fuzzy Nation and Agent to the Stars were also very enjoyable. Fuzzy Nation was a rewrite of H. Beam Piper’s Little Fuzzy, but it was a great new take on it. Although Redshirts got a little convoluted, it was never the less an entertaining and hilarious book. The premise alone was genius.
