The Android's Dream (2006)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Oct 31, 2006; Writer: John Scalzi; Genre: Fiction; Publisher: Tor Books

Ridiculously, a diplomat's fart ignites an interplanetary incident. Now Earth's fate hinges on who's first to deliver a genetically modified strain of sheep DNA to the leader of the alien Nidu.

For Fans of...
Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which inspired the title.

Last Word
Scalzi's hilarious political thriller, filled with war heroes, hackers, religious cults, and AI, is so absurd that it becomes believable. His best book yet.
