"When I talk about things I want to do with writing, the things to ask are (A) Is this something that I've never done before? And (B) Is this something that would be interesting in and of itself to attempt?" says John Scalzi, explaining the path that led him to his most recent book, Fuzzy Nation, a "reimagining" of H. Beam Piper's 1962 science-fiction novel Little Fuzzy. "Think of this as a 'reboot' of the Fuzzy universe, not unlike the recent J.J. Abrams 'reboot' of the Star Trek film series (but with hopefully better science)," Scalzi explains in his author's note. That idea—of reimagining a classic piece of sci-fi literature—certainly fits Scalzi's criteria. It's (A) something he's never done before, and (B) a pretty interesting experiment. ERIK HENRIKSEN
