Horrid characterizations, in what read like bad Star Trek fanfiction, with predictably terrible terrible worldbuilding and main plot.(Redshirts was fun, not outstanding, but still fun)
Ugh, Crusher.I heard the Wil Wheaton audiobook rather than go for the actual print edition, so i suspect that Wil's delivery helped to both make it fun and gloss over some of the rough bits. The meta ending doesn't work quite as well as Galaxy Quest (also Star Trek fan-fic with deliberately bobbins secondary world-building) and did drag somewhat, but it was still a reasonable pastiche overall.
On a related note, I found a fairly interesting report on authors' earnings from Amazon.Unlikely.
In the Scalzi household, the cats are the ones that get to sleep on the piles of cash.
I can't say that I enjoyed Howey either, Wool could not capture my attention beyond the first book.ah, Hugh Howey - he's an entirely different discussion, but like Scalzi, is another outlier in the statistics. i suppose his evangelism for Amazon balances out the trad-pub models.
Not really, if you are familiar with the subject matter at ahand the holes can become quite obvious.i'm told that 105% of statistics can be made to say what you want them to say.
I have no idea how many copies it managed to sell, but it was rather awful.Didn't Redshirts make them a pile of money? Aren't Tor a business?
