The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

I was excited to see that John Scalzi had a new story coming out. I read his blog religiously (it’s one of the few places I enjoy the political writing, even in this horrible election cycle), and I try to get to all his new books. Everything I’ve read so far, I’ve enjoyed. So, when he announced he had a novella coming out that you could listen to for free off Audible, I was in, even if it wasn’t his typical genre. And, if you hurry, you can still get the audiobook for free through November 5th (I think). Just click on the cover to follow a link to the site!
