I read a great deal of books with a great deal of range, but my primary loves are sci-fi and fantasy. Close runner-ups are traditional fiction, horror, and non-fiction. I'll be giving full reviews of each book as I read them.
The short novella is a solid addition to the Old Man's War series. I really enjoyed the introspection, although I'm certain that it isn't everyone's cup of tea. The story is really written for the fans, but doesn't belong as a standalone at all.
