Want to keep in touch with the most interesting work in contemporary genre fiction? Wanna hang out in bars and talk about spaceships? Want to read books with other speculative fiction fans? Then this is the group for you!

The Genre Book Club is a monthly Meet-Up where we get together and discuss the vast world(s) of speculative fiction. The aim is provide a friendly, comfortable atmosphere (no bullies or creepers allowed) where popular fiction fans can hang out, meet fellow devotees, and geek out over a shared love of imaginative storytelling.

The world of genre fiction is going into exciting territory, and part of the group's goal is to keep members abreast of what's happening out there. Readings will be selected by the group and will be mostly modern or recent releases drawn from Hugo, Nebula, Stoker and other author guild award winners, Io9.com's book club selections, the "Recommended Reads" list of Borderlands Book Store, and other sources. 

Genre fiction is best shared in good company.If you love books and have a big imagination, come check us out!
