Hooray we have guests!
Caitlin Sweet (The Pattern Scars, The Door in the Mountain, The Flame in the Maze) and
Peter Watts (Blindsight, Echopaxia) are paying a visit to the Otherland Bookshop for a joint reading event on May 3rd, 8 pm!!! Yes they are! And yes, admission is free as always!
Superb writing, excellent worldbuilding, the guts to bring up the ugly, the uncomfortable, the creepy - Fantasy author Caitlin Sweet has it all. I'm pretty picky when it comes to fantasy, and even I am genuinely enchanted by her writing, surely she'll win all Otherlanders over in a walk!
At our last Gatherland meeting many eyes started to shine when the name "Peter Watts" was mentioned. Yes, there's a bona-fide hard SF-fanbase eagerly waiting to hear more about the disturbingly brilliant first-contact-novel Blindsight and its equally ingenious sidequel Echopraxia.
This will be a great evening and You, dear Otherlander, should definitely be there. So mark your calendar!
Hey Book Clubbers!
This one's to remind you that this month we don't meet the day after tomorrow, but exceptionally next Friday, April 21st. So lock yourselves in for the long weekend, lay down on that couch, snuggle under your blanket and read the astounding SF masterpiece that is Gateway. By the way Jakob has written a review on it right here, so you may wanna check that out. And while you're at it - also start reading The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins, because that's what we'll talk about in May (on the 12th to be exact).
Keep calm, read books and have a nice long weekend! See you next Friday.
