Product description

Review

"With a plot that starts out as the rough life of a young agent in Hollywood and rapidly metamorphoses into B-movie territory as a remarkably intelligent first-contact yarn, this book is absurd, funny, and satirically perceptive."
"--Booklist "on "Agent to the Stars"
"If Stephen King were to try his hand at science fiction, he'd be lucky to be half as entertaining as John Scalzi."
--"Dallas"" Morning News" on "The Ghost Brigades"
