16 10 2009

Apologies for not updating for so long, mostly due to personal reasons. The group has been continuing to meet regularly and is still going strong, with the October meeting due on Tuesday 27th from 6 to 7pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street (we’re usually right through at the back of the downstairs restaurant section). The book for this month will be near-future Interface by Neal Stephenson and Frederick George.

October 2008 meeting

2 10 2008

Apologies for the gap in posting on here but due to distressing personal circumstances I’ve not been maintaining any of my normal personal sites for some time and am just returning to them and this one now. The book choice for the October meeting of the Book Group is the seminal graphic novel Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, the only graphic novel to appear on Time Magazine’s list of 100 best novels of the last 80 years. The meeting will be on Tuesday 28th of October from 6 to 7pm in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Hanover Street.





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.
