Meet Author John Scalzi

Join us as Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi visits to discuss his latest novel, The Last Emperox, the conclusion of the Interdependency series.

The Last Emperox is the thrilling conclusion to the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling Interdependency series, the epic space opera adventure from John Scalzi.

The collapse of The Flow, the interstellar pathway between the planets of the Interdependency, will leave billions of people cut off from the rest of human civilization. Despite insurmountable scientific evidence, many still rationalize, delay, and profit from these final days of humanity's greatest empire. Emperox Grayland II strives to save her people from impoverished isolation, but those opposing her will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne.

John Scalzi is one of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction authors to emerge in the last decade. His debut Old Man's War won him science fiction's John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. His New York Times bestsellers include The Last Colony, Fuzzy Nation, and Redshirts, the latter winning the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel. Material from his widely read blog, Whatever, has also earned him two other Hugo Awards. Scalzi also serves as critic-at-large for the Los Angeles Times. He lives in Ohio with his wife and daughter.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
