December meeting

3 12 2007

For the final meeting of 2007 we will meet a week earlier than usual on the fairly sensible grounds that our usual last Tuesday of the month would have been on Christmas Day, so we will be meeting instead on Tuesday 18th of December, at the usual time of 6pm in the normal haunt of Henderson’s on Hanover Street. It’s my turn to pick a book this time and I’ve gone for a classic by Tim Powers, the Anubis Gates, a brilliant mix of historical fiction with science fiction and a touch of magical fantasy as a modern scholar on a time travel trip to the 1800s to see Coleridge speak finds himself stuck in the past. I’m hoping the rest of you enjoy this as much as I do, its one of those books that figures on a lot of writer’s favourite book lists.
