In the books section of my Best of 2006 post I said I don't read that many books that come out in a given year.
Well, I just finished The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi, and this is best book of 2006.
It is a stand alone follow up to his 2005 novel Old Man's War, which is also great.
So there. Go read it or know that you missed out on the book Norton G. Francenstien called the best book of the year.
Just so you know, John Scalzi also got the Hugo award for best new author, so you know it's not just me.
