Yes, we have some bananas

2 08 2010

We have some bananas today. Which is a way of saying, yes, despite a long period of not posting on here the Edinburgh SF Book Group has still been running, meeting on the last Tuesday of each month in Henderson’s on Hanover Street (from 6 to 7pm), with regular members taking turn about to pick a book. For the August 2010 meeting it is Chris’ turn to choose and he has picked Cory Doctorow’s Makers, making this the second Doctorow novel we’ll have covered in the Group. The next meeting will be on Tuesday 31st of August, all welcome.





November 2009 meeting

18 11 2009

The November meeting will take place on Tuesday 24th at 6pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street; the book under discussion this month is the entrancing fantasy from Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus.





October 2009 meeting

16 10 2009

Apologies for not updating for so long, mostly due to personal reasons. The group has been continuing to meet regularly and is still going strong, with the October meeting due on Tuesday 27th from 6 to 7pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street (we’re usually right through at the back of the downstairs restaurant section). The book for this month will be near-future Interface by Neal Stephenson and Frederick George.

October 2008 meeting

2 10 2008

Apologies for the gap in posting on here but due to distressing personal circumstances I’ve not been maintaining any of my normal personal sites for some time and am just returning to them and this one now. The book choice for the October meeting of the Book Group is the seminal graphic novel Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, the only graphic novel to appear on Time Magazine’s list of 100 best novels of the last 80 years. The meeting will be on Tuesday 28th of October from 6 to 7pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street.





March meeting

17 03 2008

Apologies for being late posting details, but between being on holiday and then superbusy I clean forgot to update the blog, so very quickly the March meeting will be on Tuesday 25th at the usual time of 6pm in Henderson. Susan has the choice this month and has selected The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue, which I am looking forward to if mine ever turns up in the post…





February meeting

4 02 2008

It’s Alexa’s first ever turn to pick a book this month and she has gone for Mobius Dick by Andrew Crumey. No, I don’t think it is about a man with a very elastic willy who gets it tied in an improbably endless knot… The February meeting should take place on Tuesday 26th from 6 to 7pm in the usual haunt of Henderson’s on Hanover Street.

January meeting

3 01 2008

Alex has picked the book for this month, Kirsten Bakis’ Lives of the Monster Dogs, which I confess I don’t know a thing about other than the fact it involves talking dogs (is that really fiction??) and it seems to be only available second hand.  The meeting will on Tuesday 29th January at the usual time of 6pm in Henderson’s on Hanover Street, all are welcome to come along and join in.
