January 2007 meeting

19 12 2006

The Book Group meeting for January 2007 will take place on Tuesday 30th in the usual haunt of Henderson’s on Hanover Street (hopefully a bit quieter and in our usual spot this time) at 6pm. The book under discussion will be Robert A Heinlein’s SF war tale of man versus superbug Starship Troopers.

December meeting

1 12 2006

The December meeting will fall on Tuesday 19th at the usual time of 6pm in Henderson’s on Hanover Street. It’s Beth’s turn to choose this month and she has selected a classic from one of the godfather’s of SF, Herbert George Wells, The Island of Doctor Moreau, with themes of eugencics, race and manipulation of nature by man which seems to become more relevant every decade. Since this is such an old book it is well outside copyright, meaning there are many budget Penguin Classics and the like editions to be had, or you can get the text free from Project Gutenberg.
