Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi
Free admission

Jack Holloway works alone, for reasons he doesn’t care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorp’s headquarters on a planet, 178 light-years from the corporation’s headquarters on Earth, Jack is content working as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, that’s not up for discussion.

John Scalzi’s Fuzzy Nation (dt.: Der Wilde Planet) is a ‘reboot’ of H. Beam Piper’s novel Little Fuzzy, adapting the science fiction classic from 1962 to contemporary storytelling. The result is a witty and gripping science fiction story that manages to tie in a good dose of current politics and economy with the discovery of a new species, the Fuzzies.
