The December meeting of the Edinburgh SF Book Group will take place on Thursday the 8th of December at 6pm, with the venue once more being Henderson’s yummy veggie/wholefood restaurant on Hanover Street. The book under discussion will be City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff VanderMeer. It comprises four novellas set in and around his city of Ambergris and associated material pertaining to the city (like the squid in the nearby river) – Jeff has a new full-length novel set in Ambergris, Shriek, due out in January in the UK, which I hope will confirm him to larger audiences as a wonderfully unusual and inventive writer. All are welcome to come along and join in.
