Our next meeting 15th July. As far as I know this will be in the meeting room in the Storyhouse building, though I’ll believe that when it happens! If there are any last minute changes of venue I will update this post accordingly.
Anyhow, we will be discussing The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter. In retrospect it’s a bit surprising we took this long to get round to an Angela Carter book. Hopefully it will have been worth the wait.
At this meeting we have to come up with a shortlist of a dozen or so books for the final four months of 2017. The books that were on the last shortlist are listed below. We don’t have to reselect these so if there’s a book you really want to discuss and it isn’t on the list be sure to mention it.
- Dave Hutchinson – Europe at Midnight
- Johanna Sinisalo – The Core of the Sun
- Ken Macleod – Descent
- Lawrence M. Schoen – Barsk
- 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)
