Cover Art: John Harris illustrator. Unknown publication date. First he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news for humanity is that we have finally made it into interstellar space, The bad news is that there are few planets out there fit to live on - and plenty of alien races willing to compete for them.
Therefore we must fight: to defend Earth itself, and to stake our claim to planetary living space. Far from Earth this conflict has been going on for decades, brutal, bloody and unyielding. Earth itself is now a backwater, with the bulk of humanity's resources in the hands of Colonial Defense Forces. But you cannot join the CDF until you reach retirement age because they don't want young people; only those with the knowledge and skills amassed during decades of living.
Once you join CDF, you'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return. First come two years at the front and, if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own on one of those hard-won colony planets. When John Perry agrees to this deal, he has only the vaguest idea of what to expect.
Because, light-years from home, the actual fight he faces is harder than he could imagine. His combat scenes are blood-roiling. Published by Tor Books About this Item: Tor Books, As new. First edition with full number line. Tor Mini Book. John Scalzi s Old Man s War will take audiences on a heart-stopping adventure into the far corners of the universe.
John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday.
Old Man War not Zoe by John Scalzi
First he visited his wife s grave. The good news is that humanity finally made it to the stars. The bad news is that, out there, planets fit to live on are scarce--and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So: we fight.
Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding. Responsible for protecting humanity, the Colonial Defense Force doesn t want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You ll be taken off Earth, never to return. You ll serve two years in combat.
And if you survive, you ll be given a homestead of your own on a hard-won planet light-years from home. You'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return.
Old Man's War Series 1-6
You'll serve two years at the front. And if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own, on one of our hard-won colony planets. John Perry is taking that deal. He has only the vaguest idea what to expect.
Because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine--and what he will become is far stranger. John Perry, a year-old retired advertising writer, joins the Colonial Defense Forces who protect human interplanetary colonists. Volunteers sign letters of intent and provide DNA samples at age 65, which John and his now-deceased wife Kathy had done ten years prior to the beginning of the story.
Following a series of sometimes bizarre psychological and physical tests, Perry's mind is ultimately transferred to a new body based on his genetic material. His first engagement is with the Consu, a fierce and incredibly intelligent, though religiously zealous, alien species.

Perry improvises a tactic which enables the CDF to win this first battle quickly. This is soon followed by a number of battles with, among others, the bear-like Whaidians and the tiny Covandu. Now a veteran, Perry participates in the Battle for Coral. This virtuoso debut pays tribute to SF's past while showing that well-worn tropes still can have real zip when they're approached with ingenuity.
It's Starship Troopers without the lectures. It's The Forever War with better sex. It's funny, it's sad, and it's true. A space war story with fast action, vivid characters, moral complexity and cool speculative physics, set in a future you almost want to live into, and a universe you sincerely hope you don't live in already.
