Script Notes on "The Birth Of Jesus," By John Scalzi

This is either really blasphemous, or really funny, depending on how much eggnog and stress you're going on right now.  John Scalzi has come up with some contemporary Hollywood commentary on the movie version of the Nativity story.

BOOK REVIEW: “The Last Colony” by John Scalzi (2007)

I’ve read five of John Scalzi’s novels now, and there hasn’t been a one of ’em I didn’t like. Granted the previous book in this series - “The Ghost Bigades,” reviewed here http://www.republibot.com/content/book-review-%E2%80%9C-ghost-brigades%E...
- was probably the weakest of the bunch, but he’s still batting above .750, and he hasn’t struck out yet. He’s earned my faith.

BOOK REVIEW: “The Ghost Brigades” by John Scalzi (2006)

You know, despite the orgies and bloodshed and torture and death and murder and mayhem and mutilation and manipulation and general carnage and awfulness, there’s just something so *sweet* about these books.

BOOK REVIEW: “The God Engines” by John Scalzi (2009)

If you’re a Christian, a Jew, or a Muslim, you probably shouldn’t read this book. Heck, if you’re a Hindu or an African tribal shaman, you should probably try to stay away from it as well. Basically, this book is an equal opportunity offender: If you believe in God or gods at all, this story will bother and scare you. It’s like an old Pkzip file that unzips in your mind, flooding your thoughts with disturbing notions that you can’t really easily delete. Definitely not a tale to be entered into lightly and unawares because it’s a very hard one to leave behind again.

That said, I find I quite liked it.
