Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club Reminder and Miscellaneous

Anne Leckie and Marko Kloos... With headspinning guests, exciting talks and cheery dinners, last week was one of the Otherland's highlights of the year!
But we don't stop there, there is more to come - such as the role playing evening tomorrow evening and our upcoming book club discussion next Friday.

Ever imagined what the world would be like if everybody (or most of them) died? In Station Eleven Emily St John Mandel gives us her own post-apocalyptic vision with wandering theater groups performing Shakespeare, an airport used to preserve the last remaining artifacts of human civilization and a doomsday prophet with a much unusual source of inspiration for his religion. Copies available in abundance at the Otherland as always!
Mark your calendar: Friday August 11, 7.30 pm at the bookstore as usual.

Coming soon: More reviews of both books and movies - sorry for the irreguarities. I know the blog has turned into a kind of messsage board lately but that will change and we'll have plenty of OBC writeups and articles on here, so hang on!

  1. Damnation - I flubbed the Friday date again! I'm reading STATION 11 diligently at the mo', only to now realise the Friday I'm "hurrying" for is already past! :-P

    I really do need to put the dates in my electronic calendar(s) from now on. Nice would be a simple list near the top of this blog page that I can always see the next 2-3 dates on. At the moment (Aug. 16th, in the p.m.) it says on the right: 'Next Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club Meeting / Friday, August, 2017 / 07.30 pm at the Otherland Bookstore / "Station Eleven" by Emily St.John Mandel'...

    Sorry about that, folks, and I will - some day - improve! (Have already started reading the Le Guin tome as few days ago, at least. :-))
