Next meeting 22/06/13

Our next meeting is Saturday 16th June, and we’ll be discussing A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge.

I think we’re meeting downstairs again due to the eccentricities of the Library room booking system.

A Fire Upon the Deep is an odd mixture. In some ways it’s about as hard as hard Sci-Fi gets, but in the chapters about the Tines’ society it’s more like the Ursula Le Guinesque soft end of the genre. I’m guessing the book is going to polarise opinion!
