Fuzzy Nation

One of my favorite authors as a kid was H. Beam Piper and his trilogy of Fuzzy books (Little Fuzzy, Fuzzy Sapiens, and Fuzzies and Other People)— about the discovery of a sapient race of small, fuzzy creatures on an alien world—were a big part of the reason why. A few authors have written sequels to the books, but John Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation is instead a reboot, re-imagining the first book. If you're a Scalzi fan, as many people seem to be, I'll bet you'll like it just fine. For me, it's mainly served to put the Piper books back onto my reading list, to see if I like them as much now as I did in my teens.
