Always liked Asimov and Philip K Dick. Harlan Ellison, Frerick Pohl. Arthur Clark. Ursula Le Guin.
I am recently retired from Vanderbilt University and a new Chicagoan. Have been reading scifi since I was a kid and look forward to meeting some fellow readers.
Love the new venue; reasonable food, great ambience. Love it that everyone reads the books and talks about the books. And love the depth of knowledge of SciFi the group has. I read this stuff a lot as a kid, but haven't read much new scifi for the last 25 or more years. Am happy getting back into it and getting great ideas for reading from the group. Already checked Earth Abides from the library tonight -- as a result of a rec from someone in the group.
