Praise for Head On

"New and fresh....Scalzi's smirking, impish voice is a nice touch." --NPR"Particularly relevant....A fun, breezy thriller, one that showcases a world that carries with it some extremely astute commentary on some of the real problems that we face in our own. " --The Verge

"The Lock In universe is as fascinating as ever....Complex, expansive....Pretty damn cool." --RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"Head On doesn't care if you've read Lock In or not, but it does care if you enjoy a mystery wrapped up inside a science fiction novel....This might even be one of the best introductions to Scalzi out there." --Culturess"[Scalzi's] prose flows like a river, smoothly carrying us through the story; his characters are beautifully crafted; and his future world is impeccably designed, at the same time wildly imaginative and wholly plausible." --Booklist, starred review"This taut mystery, filled with memorable characters in a well-constructed world, will keep readers on the edges of their seats." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"Readers will definitely show up for the witty banter and smartass takedowns....Very clever, wonderfully satisfying fun." --Kirkus"A snappy, cannily-driven police procedural in which Scalzi highlights and skewers contemporary issues and hypocrisies." --The Seattle Review of Books "Scalzi is in good form again here with his usual rich blend of smart, rapid-fire dialogue and well-paced bursts of hard-hitting action." --Toronto Star

Praise for Lock In"This is the kind of thriller that Michael Crichton, Lincoln Child, and James Rollins do so well. Add John Scalzi to that list." --Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kraken Project and Impact"As much as Scalzi has the scientific creativity of a Michael Crichton, he also has the procedural chops of a Stephen J. Canell to craft a whodunit with buddy-cop charm and suspects aplenty--most of them in someone else's body." --USA Today

"Satisfying." --NPR"Scalzi takes his work to an entirely new level." --Cory Doctorow"A smart, thoughtful near-future thriller.... This powerful novel will intrigue and entertain both fans and newcomers." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"John Scalzi may be the most entertaining writer in SF today." --Toronto Star
