Old Man's War - John Scalzi
ebook from the tor.com web launch.
Military sf in the style of Heinlein.
It's a kill-or-be-killed universe out there that would be wasted on the young,
so put old minds in new, young, not quite human bodies and turn them out on the universe to make room for the expanding human population.
Looking forward to more of this story.
Loved the advertising copy of the brochure on the new body.
One quibble - many of the ones signing up claimed they weren't there to actually fight, yet agreed to never object morally to war and seamlessly transitioned to soldiers.
This messes with my head.
Do look forward to buying & reading subsequent stories in this series. These free ebook offerings do indeed work as they are supposed to in marketing.
