Speculative Fiction Book Club: Iain M. Banks, Consider Phlebas
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 June, we'll discuss Iain M: Banks' Consider Phlebas, his first sf novel and the first in his enormously influential and relevant series about the Culture, an interstellar civilization that seems to have solved all social problems ... Consider Phlebas is a fast-paced space opera thriller about a band of scoundrels that should appeal to fans of say, Richard Morgan. It is probably also a lot of things beyond that, but that remains to be determined by the book club!
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.
Check out the Otherlander's Blog for further information, including all dates and current books as well as reviews of all the books we've read.
