March meeting

17 03 2008

Apologies for being late posting details, but between being on holiday and then superbusy I clean forgot to update the blog, so very quickly the March meeting will be on Tuesday 25th at the usual time of 6pm in Henderson. Susan has the choice this month and has selected The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue, which I am looking forward to if mine ever turns up in the post…





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.
