    Ron, I pieced together a set, but it took a number of years and a couple of them have minor imperfections. The prices on the first two or three are pretty insane. Good luck on your quest!

    Thanks, Mike…that’s a lovely set, congrats on completing it. I’m probably hopping on board the train a little too late to make this venture economically feasible, but I thought I’d at least give it a shot. We’ll see what happens.

    Best of luck Ron. I have checked them out and found these titles to be cost prohibitive for me. It is a great series though. Netflix owns the rights. If they get this one out it may drive prices higher, so now may be a good time to jump in.

    I think my problem is that I’m often a little too quick to dismiss the science-fiction offerings from Subterranean Press and others. I’m not a big fan of the genre but there are some works and elements of it in general that I do enjoy. While thumbing through a copy of OLD MAN’S WAR yesterday, I found that it had heart, humor, action, issues of morality without taking itself too seriously...all the things that make a SF piece work for me.

    I need to stop having such a knee-jerk reaction to modern sci-fi, I think.

    Over the last three years I have devoured everything Scalzi has written. I have never really cared from SF but love Scalzi's work. I have tried other SF hoping to find more I like. I have some to the conclusion that I like Scalzi, not SF.
