Next books

The time has come to argue noisily about our next four books. The following books were suggested at the meeting, but this is just a starting point for discussion. Feel free to suggest other books as comments to this post, and I’ll edit the post to include them. We’ll make the final choice at the meeting on 26th April.


Next meeting Saturday 22nd March

The next meeting is on Saturday 22nd March at 14:00 in Chester Library in the meeting room on the first floor. We’ll be discussing Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

Most of us will have seen Blade Runner (it’s my favourite film!) but even though it’s based on the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? the feel of the book is very different. I think it’s a good introduction to Dick’s work as it isn’t too strange. Some of his books are so weird as to be positively hallucinogenic – did I hear someone mention The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch? :-).

We need to start thinking about the next batch of books, so if there’s any book you really want to discuss now is a good time to mention it. If we can get together a short list I’ll post links to reviews of the books here so we can make the final choice of four books at the April meeting.
