Current Situation at the Otherland

I am terribly sorry but ALL events that we had announced for March are cancelled in order to help stopping the further spreading of the corona virus.

That includes:
  •  The reading event tonight, March 14th, with Irish fantasy author Daniel Keyes on his book The Fall of the Phoenix
  • The Gatherland on March 19
  • The Horror Special Book Club discussion on March 27 about Kij Johnson's At the Mouth of the River of Bees
  • The reading and QA with Ken Liu and Xia Jia on March 29
Terribly sorry to disappoint you, but we'd be more disappointed in ourselves if we made you sick. So try and stay healthy and promised we'll try to catch up on missed events in better times!

PS. The book club yesterday evening on Kate Heartfield's Armed in Her Fashion DID take place, even though I forgot to post the announcement as I usually do, because I and my mind were crazy busy last week BUT let me shortly state that on my second reading I liked this book even more than the first time and would even retract my previous point of critique that it has a pacing problem towards the middle. Wish Kate Heartfield all the best finding a new publisher for it!

  1. First time in a long time that I actually finished the book club book (Armed in Her Fashin, that is) and was planning to come, but couldn't make it ... now it seem's that'll have been my last chance for a while.
    Anyway, I think AIHF is a great book - I felt that there were some pacing problems in the middle, too but the last third was perfect, including the grand finale that turned out slightly understated and less heroic than expected in the end, which was quite fitting for a book. A lot of expectations have been defied, and I truly love the characters of Claude and Monoceros (and would read a sequel about them any day!).
