Description:

**From *New York Times* bestseller and Hugo Award-winner John Scalzi, a wild-and-woolly caper novel of interstellar diplomacy** A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most . . . unusual . . . way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: a type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinare, who, with the help of a childhood friend turned artificial intelligence, scours the earth looking for the rare creature. But there are others with plans for the sheep as well. Mercenaries employed by the military. Adherents of a secret religion based on the writings of a 21st century SF author. And alien races, eager to start a revolution on their home world and a war on Earth. To keep our planet from being enslaved, Harry will have to pull off a grand diplomatic coup, a gambit that will take him from the halls of power to the lava-strewn battlefields of alien worlds. There's only one chance to get it right, to save the life of the sheep—and to protect the future of humanity. **Other Tor Books** ***The Android’s Dream*** *Agent to the Stars* *Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded* *Fuzzy Nation* *Redshirts* 1. *Lock In* 2. *Head On* **The Interdepency Sequence** 1. *The Collapsing Empire* 2. *The Consuming Fire* **Old Man's War Series** 1. *Old Man’s War* 2. *The Ghost Brigades* 3. *The Last Colony* 4. *Zoe’s Tale* 5. *The Human Division* 6. *The End of All Things* At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
