Yes, we have some bananas

2 08 2010

We have some bananas today. Which is a way of saying, yes, despite a long period of not posting on here the Edinburgh SF Book Group has still been running, meeting on the last Tuesday of each month in Henderson’s on Hanover Street (from 6 to 7pm), with regular members taking turn about to pick a book. For the August 2010 meeting it is Chris’ turn to choose and he has picked Cory Doctorow’s Makers, making this the second Doctorow novel we’ll have covered in the Group. The next meeting will be on Tuesday 31st of August, all welcome.





November 2009 meeting

18 11 2009

The November meeting will take place on Tuesday 24th at 6pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street; the book under discussion this month is the entrancing fantasy from Angela Carter, Nights at the Circus.





October meeting

26 09 2007

Jer has the choice for October and has selected a work which, like the Atwood we’ve discussed, straddles literary and science fiction (not mutually exclusive fields, despite what some literary snobs may say), Hard Boiled Wonderland at the end of the World by Haruki Murakami. Following a very enjoyable fourth anniversary meeting last night (happy birthday us!) our next meeting will be on Tuesday 30th of October at the usual time of 6pm in Henderson’s on Hanover Street – all are welcome.

For those who want to plan ahead Beth has chosen Glasgow author Hal Duncan’s astonishing debut Vellum for November and I’ve settled on Tim Powers’ Anubis Gates for December.
