Book: The God Engines by John Scalzi

A short (novella-length), dark take on a universe populated by living gods, who motivate space ships and are disciplined by, well, physical discipline.

The work is in very sharp contrast to Scalzi's often aw-shucks tone on Whatever, his blog, and substantially darker in tone than most of his other fiction.

Not that I insist on dark work, but if you're gonna do it, guts and blood and faith shattering is probably the way to do it.
