Well, we’ve just had out last meeting of the year this evening where we had a very enjoyable discussion of Jeff VanderMeer’s City of Saints and Madmen. Jeff himself very kindly emailed us some observations on the work and on novel discussion in general which added a nice element to the proceedings.

The next meeting will be on January Tuesday 31st 2006 at the usual time of 6pm, again in Henderson’s cafe on Hanover Street in the New Town. The book under discussion for January will be the Booker-nominated Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, a work which has great appeal to both SF and non-SF readers.

We have also decided to return to our old format of holding meetings on a fixed time of month, so we are aiming to hold all future meeting from the January 31st meet onwards on the last Tuesday of each month.
