    John Scalzi is a New York Times bestselling science fiction author. His novel Redshirts, an intergalactic sci-fi adventure, won the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel. His other works include the popular Old Man's War series (three novels of which have also been nominated for Hugo Awards), The Android’s Dream, Agent to the Stars, and Lock In.  In addition to the Hugo, he is also the recipient of the 2016 Governor's Award for the Arts in Ohio.

    Scalzi is the former president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and has also served as a creative consultant for the television series Stargate Universe.  His blog, Whatever, is one of the most widely-read websites in the modern Sci-Fi community.

    Mr. Scalzi was born in Fairfield, California in 1969 and now lives in Bradford, Ohio with his wife and daughter.
