Discussion is now open for our May book of the month, John Scalzi's Old Man's War. As Old Man's War was Rob's nomination, he put forth a few thoughts/questions to get us rolling this month: Something else to think about: I've heard a lot about this book being inspired by Starship Troopers. While I've not read that book, I understand (maybe incorrectly) that it has a strong pro-military stance. Given the current world climate, do you feel Scalzi is making any kind of statement regarding military or war with Old Man's War? One last thing: I believe John Scalzi maintains an interesting blog at: http://www.scalzi.com/whatever/ Rob has been in touch with Mr. Scalzi, and he may be dropping in in a week or so.
