    As a long time Star Trek fan, and a collector of Scalzi’s books I’d love to win an ARC of Redshirts. The would fit nicely onto my bookcase next to his other books.

    A chance to win this is not a bad thing, not at all. I read the sample chapters up at Tor.com and I was very favorably impressed.

  7. May 7, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I am commenting. I would love a copy of Redshirts! And Free is Awesome!

    Please, please, please! Pick me!

  11. May 7, 2012 at 10:22 am

    Free is my favorite price, although Scalzi books are worth many times as much.

  12. untruehero
    May 7, 2012 at 10:23 am

    Would love to get an ARC of the next Scalzi book!

  13. Angie Boyter
    May 7, 2012 at 10:23 am

    You teased me with the first 4 chapters & then make me wait until JUNE?! That is cruel!

  14. May 7, 2012 at 10:23 am

    Yes! I’d love to win a copy of Redshirts!

  15. Cole
    May 7, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I have been eagerly awaiting this book since Scalzi announced it.

  17. May 7, 2012 at 10:25 am

    This looks good!

  22. Todd Dashoff

    Three in nineteen chances – much better than the lottery. If only I believed they would stay that way…

  23. Tom C.
    May 7, 2012 at 10:29 am

    A scalzi ARC you say? I do so love to collect ARC’s and would surely send minions into the jaws of certain death to obtain one!

  24. Meg
    May 7, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Definitely looking forward to reading Redshirts!

  25. May 7, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Yes, please.

  26. May 7, 2012 at 10:29 am

    One of our good customers came in just yesterday asking for this! He pre-ordered it, but would love to have an early copy! It’s another way indie bookstores instill loyalty and love in their patrons–great customer service, and the opportunity to read and spread the word about a book ahead of time.

  27. May 7, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Win it to be it.

  28. May 7, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I’m a stay at home dad with 5 kids… I think I AM a “redshirt!” Thus I certainly deserve a copy! 😀 Thanks!

  30. Paul Erickson

    Haven’t read any Scalzi, but I heard good things. I want a copy!

    I’m so looking forward to the Redshirts release! I hope I’m one of the three!

  37. May 7, 2012 at 10:34 am

    I was already a fan of Scalzi when I read the preview–but it changed me from a “Buy this when I feel like it” to “I MUST HAVE THIS ON DAY ONE!”

  38. May 7, 2012 at 10:34 am

    Me, me, me.

  39. Andreea
    May 7, 2012 at 10:35 am

    This would be nice!

  40. Kevin Hogan
    May 7, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I am distinctly interested in reading this. In fact, the teaser chapters released on tor.com were what took this from a “maybe” to a “definite.” So … well done.

  41. Steve Kelso
    May 7, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I’m feeling lucky!

    I’m so excited for Redshirts!

  80. May 7, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Free is better than good, its great! A “Free Scalzi” logo needs to be put on the front of a t-shirt.

  81. May 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Yow! Free books!

    Read the first few chapters on International Pixel-Stained TechnoPeasant Day ( I feel certain I’m missing a word there, but I can’t remember what), and I am definitely excited to read the rest of this.

  86. May 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I’ll be buying the e-book anyway, but a free and rare hard copy would really serve my interests.

  87. May 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

    May 7, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I heard John Scalzi read an excerpt of this at Boskone this February, and I already know it’s brilliant. Waiting till June for the rest will be brutal–unless I can grab an advance copy, that is!!!

    I have a red shirt, but for the sake of self-preservation I rarely wear it out in public. I’m hoping that reading Redshirts will give me the courage to don my red shirt proudly and without fear.

    I’d gladly volunteer for an ARC of Redshirts (even if there was a good chance I wouldn’t survive the mission.)

  439. May 7, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    I would read this aloud, to my cats and probably to my fiance. I wouldn’t wear a red shirt since I think the cats wouldn’t appreciate and my fiance would likely take that as permission to hit me in the head with a wrench.

  440. Rachel
    May 7, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    I’m wearing a blue shirt today. Does that disqualify me? ’cause I can go change if I have to.😉

    If I win this book I will change my life, be an example to those around me, and swear an oath of fealty to whoever it is I need to suck up to for a chance at getting a free copy of a book I would probably buy anyway. I pre-ordered Fuzzy Nation, which at the time I thought was a book about ZZ Top.

    Let it be known that on this day, May the 7th, 2012, I am entering my name into this drawing for a chance to procure a copy of the new novel by John Scalzi. It’s been a long road to get here. I’d like to thank my family for their loving support, my friends for encouraging me, and of course my school teachers for educating me in the ways of writing and reading so that it might all culminate to this one moment. I await the results of this contest in my headquarters surrounded by dozens of my closest friends and family. Win or lose, I just want to say that it has been a fine race and I respect all of the other candidates. Whoever you choose, I’m sure they will treat the victory with dignity, grace, and respect. I thank you for your time.

    I would love to win a copy of Redshirts!

    Yes, please!

    Hoping. I like to think of myself as an optimist/

    I would like a copy to complement my Kindle copy!

  688. Ron Drennan
    May 8, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Want this so much it almost hurts
    A freebie shot at the new “Redshirts”

    “Agent to the Stars”,”Old Man’s war”
    No one wrote like this before!! (As Heinlein rolls in his grave)

    Scalzi rules with his pithy reads
    My need for smiles he surely feeds!

    OK, so my thirty second shot at poetic humor may be closer to “There once was a girl from—” than Elizabeth Barrett Browning – or even Dr. Seuss, of even Miss Piggy for that matter, but I WOULD like the free book.
    Thanks.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed… except when typing as that would be difficult!

    Love Scalzi’s work. I’ll be picking this up regardless of winning, but it can’t hurt to try.

  696. Bob Bradley
    May 8, 2012 at 8:58 am

    Does this include a Kindle version? I always try to get both hardcopy and kindle versions.

  697. Victor
    May 8, 2012 at 8:58 am

    Would love one!

  698. Charissa

    I am eagerly awaiting this book.

  703. May 8, 2012 at 10:01 am

    As a faithful reader of John’s blog, It’s time for me to read one of his books!

  704. Stinky93
    May 8, 2012 at 10:07 am

    Looks like a good book.
    I think I need to win this one.

  705. KarlM
    May 8, 2012 at 10:19 am

    Cool concept! Even if I don’t win, I will read it as soon as I can!

  706. Pam Gagnon

  709. Damien
    May 8, 2012 at 11:26 am

    The preview chapters were classic, fantastic Scalzi. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the book!

  710. May 8, 2012 at 11:32 am

    I read the four-chapter excerpt, and this looks like it’s going to be excellent. Particularly if you’re a Star Trek fan and one who likes very clever parodies.

  711. rabbitape
    May 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Fingers crossed!

  712. Aunti Laura
    May 8, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    Dear Tor-ettes.

    I was horrified to realize that Redshirts will be coming out DURING my upcoming vacation to the Galapagos. I mistakenly thought I could get it and read on a volcanic shore of rocky outcroppings and laugh myself silly. (Rocky Outcroppings is the name of my next Jonathan Coulton tribute band) Any way you could see sending me a copy to take with? I will gladly bring you a nice tourist tchachki.

    Love and Kisses, Aunti Laura. PS< leaving the 23rd of May.

  713. May 8, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    Pick me, pick me! Please?

  714. May 8, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    This looks really good!

  715. May 8, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    I have entered a contest for a free Redshirt book like 42 times. I will lose this one as well.

  716. lizrdgizrd
    May 8, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Yes, please.

  717. May 8, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    yes, me!

  718. lauren fasceski
    May 8, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I have been waiting for this book to come out–it looks so awesome and funny! Scalzi has a great way with amusing & witty dialogue.

  719. Magenta Griffith

    Thanks for the chance!

  721. Lea
    May 8, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    The only thing better than a Scalzi book is a free Scalzi book

  722. May 8, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    My entry.

  723. Susan Reader
    May 8, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    I am looking forward to reading Redshirts.

  724. sam
    May 8, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    My daughter and I have both read the preview chapters, would love to be able to read the rest sooner rather than later!

  725. Kat Wenger
    May 8, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    I really want to take a copy of this book to Origins so Wil Wheaton can sign it!! (Then of course I’ll be in Dayton in June to have John sign it too).

  726. Rita
    May 8, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Read the preview, loved it.

  727. Chris Voss
    May 8, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    Yes! Preview chapters were great! So says my dog! Physical books are wonderful! We found a string in the meadow! Redshirts! No stars in my house!

    Books! Yay!

  730. Carl Cole
    May 8, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Surprise me.

  731. May 8, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Scalzi is to science fiction what chocolate frosting is to Twinkies. Required, that’s what.

  732. Stephen
    May 8, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Want literature.

  733. Steve Tolopka
    May 8, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!

  734. May 8, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I’d love to, but I doubt I’ll win. I never win these things.

  735. David Teach
    May 8, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Been a fan of Scalzi since Agent to the Stars hit the web. Looking forward to reading this one too.

  736. Laurelbranch
    May 8, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    I love Scalzi’s books, super excited for Redshirts, the only thing more exciting would be winning a copy!

  737. When They Come For Me
    May 8, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    I’d love to have this to go along with my Redshirts T-shirt!

  738. Marty Muenks
    May 8, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    I would read it happily….

  739. Erik

    May 8, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I can’t wait for the release of Redshirts!

  741. May 8, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    I want this book. This is a story for people in the background. I happen to be a security guard. I suspect that if FTL flight actually existed, then I would be issued a red shirt.

  742. Amy
    May 8, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Scalzi is da best!

  743. Bruce
    May 8, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    I’d really rather have an ebook, even though Scalzi wouldn’t be able to sign it.

  744. May 8, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    I definitely need to add this to my Scalzi collection.🙂

  745. SF_Fangirl
    May 8, 2012 at 10:13 pm

    Want!

  746. May 8, 2012 at 11:18 pm

  747. Alison Sandman
    May 8, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Cool.

  748. May 8, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    Hello! Yes! I’d love an ARC of Redshirts! Thank you!

  749. May 9, 2012 at 12:26 am

    I have converted to e-books primarily, but not for Scalzi! (And a few others.)

  750. Garrick
    May 9, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Very interesting sounding book. My wife and I watch a lot of Star Trek and make a lot of references regarding the red shirts.

  751. May 9, 2012 at 7:09 am

    I would love to win an ARC

  752. Scott McLean
    May 9, 2012 at 7:13 am

    Winning an ARC certainly beats wearing red on the away mission.

  753. Suzette Ciancio
    May 9, 2012 at 7:59 am

    I love John Scalzi’s books (introduced to me by an independent bookseller) & am looking forward to this new one!

  754. Eric Grossman
    May 9, 2012 at 8:37 am

    I would love a copy of the DRM free version! I would also love a regular copy too.
    Thanks for considering me.

  755. Scott Kardel
    May 9, 2012 at 9:27 am

    Winning would be welcomed.

  756. May 9, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I cannot wait to read this and getting a free copy would be fantastic. Good luck to everyone who has entered!

  757. Je9
    May 9, 2012 at 9:44 am

    While I wait to see if I’ve won a copy, I must go stand on a cliff’s edge, prominently outlined against the horizon while I look around me. That way I’ll fall oh so cinematically when the bad guys zap me.

  758. Michael Miller
    May 9, 2012 at 10:50 am

    More Scalzi please.

  759. Gsnyder
    May 9, 2012 at 11:02 am

    pbook or ebook?

    • May 10, 2012 at 1:21 pm

      Gsnyder, all of our contests are for physical books – so far, anyway! We’ll be sure to note if we ever do an ebook giveaway.

  760. Chris. Thomson
    May 9, 2012 at 11:35 am

    ARCa are awesome. Cant wait for this.

  761. Todd Johansen
    May 9, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Ah yes. Scrolling all the way down to the bottom gives me a good idea of the odds. I still hope (expect?) to win.

  762. James K
    May 9, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Yes, I wanna be a Redshirt.

  763. Jason Marsh

    Commenting and hoping for a win!🙂

  769. May 9, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    I want to win this so that I can take it to get signed this summer.

  770. May 9, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    A great author … I always love his stuff.

  771. blacksnaked

    Would love to win 🙂 Redshirts sounds like it’s going to be fantastically fun!

  775. Sam
    May 10, 2012 at 10:46 am

    Pick me, pick me! Scalzi’s one of my favorites.

  776. superhombre
    May 10, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I am certainly not expendable, but I’ve never read Scalzi, so why not pick me?

  777. May 10, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Would ADORE an ARC of Redshirts. And it would make all my friends so jealous!

  778. May 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    I’d love to win this!

  779. May 10, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    I would be thrilled to win this book

  780. May 10, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    I think it would be cool if I got a free book!

  781. Andrew Muir
    May 10, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    I must win this book!

  782. paul sproul

    Love Scalzi

  783. Jeremy
    May 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    Sounds like a really intreging book. I would definitely love a copy!

  784. H.G. W.
    May 10, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    **Hem hem** This book embodies my soul. If it falls into another’s hands, I shudder to think what may happen.

  785. May 10, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    I thought I had already entered, but don’t see my comment here – so I’m taking the chance to enter “again” (I hope I don’t disqualify myself – I’d really love to read this and can’t afford new books just now!)

  786. nick reynolds
    May 10, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I’ve never read a book by John Scalzi, make this my first!

  787. BigAl
    May 10, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Woot!

  788. Dan
    May 10, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Pretty please with sugar on top? I’ve been a redshirt most of my life, or so it seems to me.

  789. May 10, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Me please! I would love this book!

  790. May 10, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    John Scalzi, my FAVORITE author!! I will read anything he does at least a dozen times! Wonderful writer.

  791. May 10, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Read the first 4 chapters on my Nook and found it really fascinating. I have more questions than answers and it will be a usual Scalzi brain-twister as he develops his premise.

  792. Aaron Robbins
    May 11, 2012 at 12:36 am

    I also thought I had already entered, but I don’t see a comment either.

  793. May 11, 2012 at 11:03 am

    Sign us up – my son has been pestering me about Redshirts!

  794. May 11, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Holy squeak! Found out about this with just 35 minutes to spare! Hope this counts!

  795. May 11, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    No!!! Too late! But I’m still looking forward to the book.

  796. Natalie
    May 11, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Heck yes, sign me up!
