Preparing for the next round

Damn, now I'm just half-way through the 2nd book of my previous order and now I already basically know, which books will make it into the next round:

  • Peter David's "Missing in Action" (Star Trek: New Frontier)
  • John Scalzi's "Old Man's War"

Yes, another non-StarTrek book. Today Cory Doctorow post something about Scalzi's new novel "The Ghost Brigades" on BoingBoing. Since I've never heard of that author before, I went to check out Cory's post his previous book "Old Man's War" and found it quite interesting, esp. since Cory describes it as

It's Starship Troopers without the lectures. It's Forever War with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true. Cory Doctorow

I liked "Starship Troopers", I liked "The Forever War", so there's quite a chance that I will also like this book then ;) But first I really have to finish the 2nd and 3rd book from the current round. I'm really getting slow...
