Overview

When his city council representative is hit by a bus, David Sawyer decides to run for the newly-vacated seat. One problem: He's a human in an alien-majority district that hasn't voted in a human in half a century. Can Sawyer pull it off in a race that includes a politically smooth, physically gelatinous front runner, a carnivore whose entire platform is on the right to consume pets, and two literally bile-spewing sisters? A tale of aliens, politics and humor from the author of "Old Man's War" and "The Android's Dream".

This is a very short story. Entertaining and goofy, it works well but doesn't develop too much. Almost like the first chapter of a light but entertaining soft sci-fi novel.

In typical fashion Scalzi gives us something to think about wrapped in an amusing story.
