How long have you been saving those up??

John Scalzi | April 5, 2007 01:03 PM

All my life, Jon. All my life.

The Android's Dream ... HANDMAID RESTORED ...
So TAD was not only an homage to Philip K. Dick, but Margaret Atwood, as well? :)

Too much time of your hands?

Christian | April 5, 2007 01:42 PM

"Agent to the Stars"

....GAS THREATENS TOT

Priceless!

Ron Hogan | April 5, 2007 02:13 PM

I'm sure I'm not the only SF fan who would buy a book called DAMN REDHEADS RIOT sight unseen.

Honu-girl | April 5, 2007 02:38 PM

Being a redhead, I would definitely buy DAMN REDHEADS RIOT, sight unseen, because, well, we do riot, damnit!

(We're also an alien species who will eventually take over the world, but that's a different topic...)

Steve Buchheit | April 5, 2007 02:45 PM

Say, Scalzi, since the date of the tour approaches with ever flightful feet, what name did you ever decide on to call the tour?

"HOT LONELY CATS"

Sigh...as a jury member for a local SF/F literary award, I have read WAY too many stories that could easily have had this title.

Pat J | April 5, 2007 07:11 PM

DAMN REDHEADS RIOT would also be an awesome name for a rock band.

Hibryd | April 5, 2007 10:06 PM

Damn! Someone beat me to the Dave Barry reference. I was going to say "Taste Other Angst" or "Holy Cola Tents" for band names.

Brian Greenberg | April 9, 2007 12:32 PM

Given the plot, I think "GAS THREATENS TOT" would have been a better name for The Android's Dream.

Clearly a glitch in the anagram generator (please, please, please tell me you used an anagram generator, and you didn't spend hours coming up with all of these on your own...)

Petter Hesselberg | April 10, 2007 04:01 AM

Old Man's War = A Man's World. There's also "lama drowns" and "sandal worm".

YMMV. A lot, probably.

Petter Hesselberg | April 10, 2007 04:18 AM

The Last Colony = Call to Honesty

Stealth colony, stealthy colon. Shot lonely cat. Call to thy nose! Scanty hell, too.

The salt colony?
