OBC on Catflaps and Labour-Saving Devices

Book Club time is almost here again!
Next Friday, February 8, 2019, we'll meet to discuss Douglas Adams' silly little detective novel about the man who has "a depressingly accurate knack for making wild assumptions": Dirk Gently.
Well, good thing that's the only thing depressing about this book!
See you on Friday!

Upcoming OBC discussion dates and titles are as follows:

February 8       Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams
March 8           Tales of the Dying Earth by Jack Vance

April 12           The Trees by Ali Shaw

Next Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club HORROR SPECIAL:

February 22     Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado


March 15         "About 5750 Words" by Samuel R. Delany (published in Jewel-Hinged Jaw:
                      Notes on the Language of Scence Fiction)
                     "Truth as a Vehicle for Enhancing Fiction, Fiction as a Vehicle for Discovering
                      Truth" by Steven Brust (published here)

The Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club meetings are always on the second Friday of the month at 7.30 pm at the Otherland Bookstore. The additional sessions on horror and theory also take place on a Friday.
There's always snacks and drinks that you don't have to pay for, but contributions are welcome.
You never need to sign up to join us, but we appreciate it greatly that you do read the book if you're coming.
