Bookalicious (Sci-Fi / Fantasy, Manga, Comics, Graphic Novels) + Board Games

NEW DATE! February 1st!!! @ Winchester Kitchen & Bar *see video for details*

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUcmzmv7MLk

Okay so the idea behind this is to share your interest in SciFi and Fantasy novels/graphic novels/comics/mangas with others :) Think of it like a suggestion gathering where we can talk about which books you enjoy. A great introduction for people eager to start reading new things! Also, we will make sure to divide things into smaller groups so its not intimidating. (No public speaking).

    Can't make it. Sorry guys. My input for bookalicious is any Culture Novel by Iain m banks. Imagine star wars meets lexx meets farscape all mashed up into the reasonable sound science of an Asimov novel. Imagine sexy, exciting and a little bit disturbing. I look forward to what other people submit for bookalicious.

      For anyone who is into James Cameron's Terminator 1 & 2, there is an author named Fred Saberhagen, who came out with fantastic books called, "The Berserker" series:

      I am currently reading "The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells ( It's actually a 2 in 1 book so it's sandwiched with "The Invisible Man" ). Check out the trailer for the 2002 version of the movie:

      I'm really confused about how I was looking at a page with the old date/time earlier today when it was all changed two days ago... What kind of sorcery is this?

    Pauper's Pub at Bloor and Bathurst has an upstairs room that can be booked for $100 (refunded when drink/food goes over $350, IIRC).

    Just need an organizer to contact them via their site.

    Even if only half of the folks show up we'd have enough from the $5 event fee to cover reservations.

    I can also check with The Ballroom Bowl (downtown, Richmond & John, near Scotiabank Theatre) to see if we can make reservations upstairs for a large group.

    I know it's still a week away, but where are we doing this? What place do we know off that can support this many people at once? That isn't a rent-able board room.
