A glowing new review for John Scalzi's The Dispatcher

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

We're more than pleased at the reception that John Scalzi's The Dispatcher has received thus far. The audio was a best-seller at Audible, while the forthcoming print edition is racking up reviews like this one, from Kirkus Reviews: “A what-if tale reminiscent of Asimov at his twistiest.” We'll take it.

In case you were wondering, here are a few more details about the book:

One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone—999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life.

Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher—a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death's crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death, and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge what they see as a wrong.

It's a race against time for Valdez to find his friend before it's too late…before not even a Dispatcher can save him.

Limited: 400 signed numbered hardcover copies, bound in leather: $45
Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition: $28

The Dispatcher is at the printer now, and will ship in May.
