As I previously announced we'll have a horror special in August, so we don't have to wait too long for a horrific discussion at the Otherland. Of course our new (English) horror section comes in super handy at that.
What we'll do is this: Anyone can bring one or more suggestions to the next discussion on June 6th and we'll have a voting (just like a regular OBC voting). We can also settle on a date for the horror special at our next meeting.*
IF nobody comes up with a suggestion, I have a little selection of books I'd like to read and discuss with you, and here they are:
The Death and Life of Schneider Wrack by Nate Crowley
The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley
Universal Harvester by John Darnielle
Talking about our next meeting; June 6, at 7.30 pm, at the Otherland Bookshop as usual. No sign up, no admission fee.
Just read "Consider Phlebas" by Iain Banks and come join us!
In this first novel of the Culture Series, Banks introduces us to the Culture-Idiran War and to the head-spinning adventures of the shape shifting mercenary Bora Horza Gobuchul.
*If you want to vote for the horror special but don't want to discuss Consider Phlebas, come on over anyway, we'll do the voting before the discussion, or just leave a comment here on the blog.
P.S. Guess what we now have at the bookshop?
Clue: It's in the left corner ;).
