Review: "Redshirts" by John Scalzi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What starts as a piss-take on "Star Trek"s disposable away-team characters gets, first, properly twisted (the characters put the pieces together) and then goes meta, or recursive, or something. Funny and breezily written, with some appropriately sentimental genre stuff. This would be a perfect transcontinental airplane read.
