The next meeting is on Saturday 17th March at 2 p.m. in the Storyhouse meeting room. We’ll be discussing Europe at Midnight by Dave Hutchinson. This isn’t a book or author I know much about, but the reviews have been pretty good, though judging from the reviews it’s a pretty weird book.
At this meeting we need to come up with a shortlist of about a dozen books for our next four meetings. The current shortlist is looking pretty bare:
- James Brogden – Hekla’s Children
- Lavie Tidhar – The Violent Century
- Paul McAuley – Something Coming Through
- Johanna Sinisalo – The Core of the Sun (removed?)
- Sheri S. Tepper – Grass (removed?)
I think, though I wouldn’t swear to it, that we have already decided to remove The Core of the Sun and Grass from the list on the grounds they were never going to be chosen. So we need at least nine new books! The books don’t necessarily have to be works of genius. Any book that is likely to provoke a heated discussion is fine. Please post ideas on the Facebook group.
