Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In September, we read John Scalzi's Redshirts. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading right now. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.


Scalzi will be stopping by to talk to you about the book this Friday, October 5, from 12-1 PM Pacific Time. I'll put up a separate post calling for questions on Thursday, so look for that if you want to ask him something!

So, what did you think of the book?

Want to get a head start on our next book? This month, we'll be reading Carolyn Ives Gilman's fantasy epic Isles of the Forsaken. We reviewed it here, and you can pick it up via your favorite bookstore or Amazon. We'll meet on Oct. 30 to discuss it.
