Love the illustration that accompanies this review.  It is a portion of the cover art from The Human Division by John Scalzi.  And the review is pretty interesting too.  Paul Di Filippo on :

Entertainingly exemplifying the maxim that “All diplomacy is a continuation of war by other means,” The Human Division is the type of intelligently crafted and inventive military-political science fiction that reminds us that though we might be able to pinpoint a genre’s takeoff point, nobody can predict how far it will fly.
