Science Fiction & Fantasy Bookclub #34
For July’s meeting, we’ll be reading Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas by John Scalzi. A Star Trek parody in the vein of Galaxy Quest, Redshirts follows a group of easily-sacrificeable characters on board the Universal Union starship Intrepid who start realizing that the high mortality rates of their colleagues is no coincidence.
Join us for discussion of our current book as well as helping decide our next selection.
This is what you missed at our last bookclub meeting:
We read Locke and Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, a good return to the trade paperback comic format after our last foray with Fables exactly two years ago. We enjoyed it quite a bit, though there were a few complaints about early character design. Most thought it a bit short for our current format—some of us continued through a few more volumes.
When: Monday, July 9, 2011 – 6:30pm-8:00pm
Where: Filter, 1373-75 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL
