Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer.
In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her: silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view - her own. As she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world, Sagan reflects on her life, in her own words - recalling friends, battles, and experiences; illustrating all the violence and wonder of her times; trying to fit "an entire life into this compressed space".
For fans of Scalzi's works, it's an intimate and surprising glimpse into one of his most popular characters. As read by Stephanie Wolfe, it's unlike any other science-fiction story you'll hear this year.
& a great series slowly bleeds to death
I hold Old Mans War to be the greatest SiFi book ever written, even acknoledging the pedestal i put it on, The short story "The Sagon Diary" ranks low. In the authors attempt to write in a females voice he stumbles in poetic nonsence. There is nothing new, nothing interesting, just a bunch of feelings pushed around the page.
