book log: John Scalzi — Agent to the Stars

Finished this on the bus home tonight. Loved it — nicely constructed, very funny, and just enough bite to make it more than slapstick. First Contact story in which the aliens are gelatinous cubes who want to make friends, but are well aware that as rather smelly gelatinous cubes they’re going to *scare* people — so they hire a Hollywood agent to solve their image problem before publicly revealing themselves.

It’s available as a free download at Scalzi’s website. Go check it out.
