The King of the Dead is Dead, Long Live the King!


It was only in February that we celebrated George A. Romero's 77th birthday with a Zombie-Special, and now I have to hear that he has passed away yesterday July 16, 2017.

It's so very very sad - we lost a legendary, genius, iconic master of horror!
Thank you George, for having been.

You can read stuff we previously published about him here and here. And here's a great documentary about his work, among other directors. Let's all take the time to indulge in Zombie movies today in his remembrance.

Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club

It is soon discussion time again at the Otherland Book Club!

Haldeman's The Forever War (1974) is not only the first title in the SF masterworks series AND winner of the Nebula, Hugo and Locus Awards, it is also the first military science fiction we will be talking about in our club!
So we expect everybody who is reading it or has read it in the past to join. It isn't even a long book, you can still make it if you start today.

Plus, the movie is comming out soon! Don't miss the chance to crack your smartass-smile and say "The book was better!" when it is showing! Read it!

Friday July 14th, 7.30 pm at the Bookstore, admission free, no registration needed as always! See you there.
