September meeting

2 09 2007

Chris has picked the recent paperback by Edinburgh-based Charles Stross, Glasshouse, for his choice this month. For those who haven’t read him Charlie is one of the fast-rising names in SF and he’s been picking up awards to go with the good reviews. This is quite an accessible novel by him, touching on the nature of identity, technology, gender roles, literal identity theft, power, control mechanisms for society and also has his cynical humour (which includes stabs at reality TV shows). The meeting will be on Tuesday 25th of September at 6pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street.
