Agent to the Stars or Redshirts by John Scazli

The Last Condo Board of the Apocalypse by Nina Post

Others?

Old Man’s War Universe - John Scalzi

  • Old Man’s War (2005)
  • The Ghost Brigades (2006)
  • The Sagan Diary [Novella] (2007)
  • The Last Colony (2007)
  • Zoe’s Tale (2008)

Old Man’s War synopsis from wikipedia: It is set in a universe heavily populated with life forms; colonists from Earth must compete for the scarce planetary real estate which is suitable for sustaining life. As such, Perry must learn to battle against a wide variety of aliens. While the soldiers in Starship Troopers and The Forever War relied on powered body armor to gain advantage over their aliens, the soldiers in Old Man’s War have enhanced DNA and nanotechnology, giving them advantages in strength, speed, and endurance.
