Become a member of Tor.com and get a John Scalzi story a week early

To commemorate our upcoming second birthday, John Scalzi has written an original short story which will go public on Tor.com on our actual anniversary, July 20. But! If you’re already a registered member of Tor.com, this morning we’re emailing you this new Scalzi opus directly, a week in advance of its general availability. Call it our “thank you” for being part of Tor.com. And if you’re not a member but are now saying to yourself “Drat! I'd better go become a member!”, once you sign up (it’s free) and log in, you’ll be able to follow this link to the Scalzi tale.

And why wouldn’t you want to become a member? Membership in Tor.com gives you powers on the site unavailable to the common horde. It makes you more attractive to members of the appropriate sex, and it builds strong bones and a glossy coat. Tor.com members include writers, agents, rocket scientists, ballerinas, astronauts, and international men and women of mystery. Act now, act without thinking, sign up today.

Moreover, to answer the question that you were surely about to ask, Mr. Scalzi’s new narrative is, as you would expect, a very serious, deeply rigorous, and morally earnest work that will bring us all face to face with some of the most salient issues of our time. Called “The President’s Brain Is Missing.”

Amusing story and love the punch line at the end. Rob

It's true. I am more attractive to the opposite sex. Unfortunately, that came several years too late.
