Scott Westerfeld STUPID PERFECT WORLD One LIKE MOST DAYS, I was barely on time for Scarcity class. It wasnt a real course with grades and everything, so only the most pathetic meekers worked hard at it. The rest of us just showed up and tried not to fall asleep. Nobody wanted to fail, of course, because that meant repeating: another long semester of watching all those olden-day people starving and being diseased. At least regular History has battles Scarcity was just depressing. So when I walked ...

Scott Westerfeld BEHEMOTH To Justine: nine years, seventeen novels, and counting ONE Alek raised his sword. On guard, sir Deryn hefted her own weapon, studying Aleks pose. His feet were splayed at right angles, his left arm sticking out behind like the handle of a teacup. His fencing armor made him look like a walking quilt. Even with his sword pointed straight at her, he looked barking silly. Do I have to stand like that she asked. If you want to be a proper fencer, yes. A proper idiot, more ...

So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld To the Innovators. You know who you are. Chapter 0 WE ARE ALL AROUND YOU. You dont think about us much because we are invisible. Well, not exactly invisible. A lot of us have hair dyed in four colors, or wear five-inch platform sneakers, or carry enough metal in our skin that its a hassle getting on an airplane. Quite visible, actually, come to think of it. But we dont wear signs saying what we are. After all, if you knew what we were up to, we couldnt work our ...

The Last Days The second book in the Peeps series Scott Westerfeld To Jazza first reader and best friend PART I INFLUENCES Ever hear this charming little rhyme Ring-around-the-rosy.

Heres the theory: Ring-around-the-rosy was an early symptom of plague: a circular rash of red skin. In medieval times, people carried flowers, ...

Fluorescent lights buzzed overhead, their white honeycombed plastic shields newly cleaned of dead insect shapes. The freshly shined floors dazzled, glinting in the hard September sunlight that streamed in through the schools open front doors. Rex Greene walked slowly, wondering how the students jostling past him could run into this place. His ...

Behind them two ranks of diesel-powered walking machines stood ready to fire, cannon aimed over the heads of the cavalry. A zeppelin scouted no-mans-land at the center of the battlefield, its metal skin sparkling. The French and British infantry crouched ...
