Book Club Discussion - Looking ahead to 2019
Its been a little quiet around here lately, so I thought I'd start a thread to talk about what we're going to do as a club this year.
Reading for the January pick, Dark Orbit by Caroline Ives Gilman is well underway. I'll post some questions up at the end of the month. Maybe you can help me with that, @RichardAbbott ?
In February @Michael_S_Miller is going to lead us in Ursula K. Leguin's The Tombs of Atuan. I really enjoyed our discussion of A Wizard of Earthsea so I'm looking forward to this a great deal.
@rossum has proposed Mission of Gravity by Hal Clement which is available in Kindle and print formats, so I thought we'd give it a go in March if that's OK with everyone. It's one of the titles in the SF Masterworks series, so bound to be good, and noted particularly for it's worldbuilding.
@RichardAbbott proposed Stirling Lanier's Hiero's Journey a few years ago and that suggestion received quite a few plusses, so how about we do this one in April? It's a post-apocalyptic fantasy, more of the Gamma World type than the Road Warrior type, and one of the books on Gary Gygax's Appendix N list.
Nothing has been planned for the rest of the year, so if you have a book you'd like to suggest please feel free - especially if you haven't led a book discussion in a while or have never done so, but would like to. Consider this an open invitation to @night_arrant @BarnerCobblewood @Charlie_X @xiombarg @PresGas @WildCard @Feral_Ink @Loz @RtG @Bill_White @Akrasia @hasaph @MARCC to suggest a book and lead a monthly discussion if you feel up to it. To our regulars, please feel free as always.
Apart from new suggestions, there are a number of books already proposed in the nominations category, so even if you have no specific ideas, please go through and upvote or comment on any of those that you'd like to read.
