Speculative Fiction Book Club: Ali Shaw, The Trees
Every second Friday of the month at 7.30 pm we, the English speaking clientele of the Otherland Bookshop, meet to discuss a selected science fiction, fantasy or horror book and enjoy snacks and drinks in our favourite bookstore.
In April, we'll talk about Ali Shaw's The Trees. I have a wary love of books about nature taking it all back from civilization - if done subtle, with the necessary weirdness and ambivalence, they can turn out great - but if they're preachy, they're a pain. I'm curious to find out on which side of the scales The Trees will come to rest ...
If you, too, enjoy reading speculative fiction and you're interested, you're more than welcome to join us! No registration required, just drop in.
