Offer: Redshirts by John Scalzi (ARC)

Item Name & Description: an ARC of Redshirts by John Scalzi, forthcoming June 2012.

Description from the cover reveal:

Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. It’s a prestige posting, and Andrew is thrilled all the more to be assigned to the ship’s Xenobiology laboratory. Life couldn’t be better...until Andrew begins to pick up on the fact that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces, (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations, and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed. Not surprisingly, a great deal of energy belowdecks is expended on avoiding, at all costs, being assigned to an Away Mission. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues’ understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is...and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.

More information.

Starting Bid: $10.

Notes: Donated by Tor Books. If the winner desires this signed, Tor will send it to the author for signing and personalization (though it will add to the shipping time).

E-mail: knepveu@steelypips.org

Bidding starts Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and ends Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
