    I always know that when I read Scalzi I ll be entertained Whether it s his science fiction, his blog whatever , and now his short fiction An Election is a humorous story of a guy, David, who decides to run for city counsel It just so happens no human has been a representative for the third district in 44 years, not to mention no human has even run for the position in 36.David s husband, James, attempts to talk him out of it, but to no avail.Most of the fun is found in the different aliens Scalzi s created, from a gelatinous blob who speaks in bubbles, to, well, let s just say there s suckers David goes door to door meeting them and runs against them.The running mates, of course, are all aliens if you can call them that at this point in the future , one of whom s only platform is that people should be able to eat each other s pets Yep, the only stance.I had fun, but I think I was expecting it to be funnier really Still go...

    Another enjoyable short read by an author who has fast become a favorite I ve yet to read anything by him that I didn t enjoy This humorous take on grassroots politics headlined by a gay couple no less was a funny read with some silly moments but still managed to have a few mature moments.

    John Scalzi can certainly bring on the humor when he wants to In this short story, the human Dave decides to run for city Council in the most xeno diverse district in the city It seems most of his neighbors are of half a dozen alien species, and a human hasn t represented the district in almost five decades As he launches his door to door campaign, both his less than supportive husband and his campaign manager whose only in it for the college credit ladle on large s...
