— Opening sentence of The Android's Dream

John Michael Scalzi II (born May 10, 1969) is best known for taping bacon to his cat, though his science-fiction writing, particularly his Old Man's War trilogy, comes a close second.

Additionally, he has published three comedic sci-fi novels, Agent to the Stars, The Android's Dream, and Redshirts. Agent to the Stars is available for free on Scalzi's website. He also wrote The Shadow War of the Night Dragons, Book One: The Dead City. It's an April Fools' joke. That was nominated for a Hugo Award.

Scalzi was also a creative consultant for the TV show Stargate Universe.

Three of his short stories, "When The Yogurt Took Over: A Short Story", "Missives From Possible Futures #1: Alternate History Search Results", and "Three Robots Experience Objects Left Behind from the Era of Humans for the First Time" were adapted into individual episodes of the animated anthology Love, Death & Robots.
