The Sagan Diary by John Scalzi

Fans of John Scalzi's "Old Man" universe, prepare yourselves: there's a long new story in that universe, told from the point of view of one of the series' most intriguing characters. Subterranean Press is proud to publish The Sagan Diary, a long novelette that for the first time looks at the worlds of the Hugo-nominated Old Man's War and its sequel The Ghost Brigades from the point of view of Lieutenant Jane Sagan, who in a series of diary entries gives her views on some of the events included in the series... and sheds new light into some previously unexplored corners. If you thought you knew Jane Sagan before, prepare to be surprised. From Goodreads

This is as the title says Jane Sagan's diary. It must be the most boring part of her diary. It is only 100 pages long but I had to pull myself together to read it. I liked the chapter where she describes how she, at his request, kills her friend Cainen. He is an alien but became her friend and this chapter is a direct follow on from a conversation in The Ghost Brigades. I am still looking forward to read The Last Colony.
