A fun & funny election in the future. Short, free & well worth the read. It's available on his web site here:

Funny little sci-fi story that I could knock out because I was too lazy to get up from the computer but wanted to read something. It took a few productive minutes away my internet surfing time, but one can only look at so many pictures of Candice Swanepoel, right?

See what I mean? Stop drooling surfing and start reading the story!

Read it for free online: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2010/11/01/an-election-a-short-story-presented-by-sub...

Way way way to short........I wanted more.

How can a human candidate for the council election beat the local candidates when humans are the minority group in the area. Well it can only happen by luck all of which happens in this 24 pager. One candidate eats the local pets the other candidate is only there because her sister is and the others.....ah you have to read it. For a quick hour (and this is pushing it) fun read this is the book.

It could have been made into something so much longer and I would hope that maybe oh maybe if it is not already written it would be a great book to see how the winning candidates first term in office went. But who was the winning candidate? You need to read it to find out :-) ( )
