If you read my review of "Agent to the Stars" then you already know how much I liked this book. No, that's not right. I loved this book. I liked it so much that I immediately went and bought a few other Scalzi books because I was sure they'd be excellent (they are). So when I went to my mailbox yesterday I was so excited to see that TOR had sent me an extra copy of "Agent to the Stars"; which allows me to offer a copy to some lucky winner. Book Description: The space-faring Yherajk people have come to Earth to meet us and to begin humanity's first interstellar friendship. There's just one problem: They're hideously ugly and they smell like rotting fish. Gaining humanity's trust isn't easy when you look like a B-movie terror. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal. Thomas Stein knows all about closing deals -- he's one of Hollywood's hottest young agents ,who’s just closed the biggest deal of his career. But it's one thing to sell your client when she's a hot young starlet. It's another thing entirely when your client is an entire alien species, depending on you to pull off the greatest introduction in this history of man. Stein's going to need all his smarts, all his skills, and all his wits to earn his percentage -- and his place in history. The rules are the same as usual. Either leave a comment here or email me at sqt1969(at)gmail(dot)com under the header "Agent" to enter. I will randomly select a winner by Friday November 6th. Please be sure I can contact you easily. If I cannot reach the winner within 48 hours I will pass the book onto another entrant. Open to everyone. Good luck!
