One of the best, funniest, and original stories I've read. From the back page only, I spent a long time putting off this book, but having finally read it, I began to regret that decision. "Agent to the Stars" takes on a new perspective to aliens, and the characters are marvelously well structured and balanced. A book full of twists and turns, will keep you interested and thinking until the very end and then some.

This is the most entertaining novel I've read in years. I give it my highest recommendation. After reading a copy from the library, I even bought a copy to loan to friends. You'll love it!

I just finished reading this for the second time and I'm still laughing. Finally, aliens with a sense of humor! Scalzi manages to be hilarious, cynical and unexpectedly touching by turns; a great take on first contact stories.

If you don't want to wait for a printed copy, a draft of the story is available online here: http://www.scalzi.com/agent/
