The Human Division, the latest story set in the universe of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War, will debut on January 15, 2013.
The episodic narrative will kick off with “The B-Team,” the first of 13 episodes available as serialized DRM-free ebooks every week. Much “Like the episodes of a good high-end cable drama, each one will have enough internal integrity to work as an enjoyable chunk of story on its own, but each will advance a ‘season’-long storyline as well,” according to the project’s editor, Patrick Nielsen Hayden. (Read more about the project here.)
Ron Hogan will be reading and talking about the developments of each episode every Tuesday here on Tor.com, too. Just bookmark The Human Division Read-Along index for the latest.
