Since the library is closed from March 31st until 11th May (for the move to the new site) we’ve decided to postpone the April meeting until May. So we will be meeting to discuss Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky on Saturday May 20th.
There are vague plans to hold a social meeting in April to make up for the cancelled meeting. For news on this keep an eye on our Facebook page.
We’ve chosen the shortlist for the next four books. The list is:
- Angela Carter – The Magic Toyshop
- Dave Hutchinson – Europe at Midnight
- Johanna Sinisalo – The Core of the Sun
- Ken Macleod – Descent
- Lawrence M. Schoen – Barsk
- Naomi Alderman – The Power
- Paul McAuley – Something Coming Through
- Sergei Lukyanenko – Night Watch
- Sheri S. Tepper – Grass
- Stephen Baxter – The Time Ships
- Stephen Graham Jones – Mongrels
- Ted Chiang – The Stories of Your Life (Anthology)
- Vonda N. McIntyre – Dreamsnake
I’ve written up summaries of all these books and you can read the PDF here.
