October's Sci-Fi - Dangerous Visions edited by Harlan Ellison (Anthology)

Please join us as we discuss Dangerous Visions, the acclaimed anthology edited by Harlan Ellison. This collection of 33 short stories (many award-winning) includes contributions from almost every major speculative fiction writer of the 1960s, and is credited as one of the definitional works of the New Wave science fiction movement. The book is of middling length, at about 592 pages.

Please keep your RSVP updated and accurate!* Space is limited for this event. If it fills up, please add yourself to the waiting list if interested. Our smaller morning session can be found here.

From GoodReads:

The most honored anthology of fantastic fiction ever published, featuring the works of such luminaries as Robert Silverberg, Philip Jose Farmer, Robert Bloch, Philip K. Dick, Larry Niven, Fritz Leiber, Poul Anderson, Damon Knight, J.G. Ballard, John Brunner, Frederik Pohl, Roger Zelazny and Samuel Delany.

 


*Since missing one of these meetups is taking a spot away from someone else who wants to go, we'll need to have a stricter attendance policy than normal. For book discussions, 3 no-shows in a rolling 3-month period will prohibit you from attending any other book discussion for 2 months after your last no-show. In order to avoid a no-show, please update your RSVP no later than 10pm the night before a discussion. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!

    ALERT: We're not meeting in the restaurant today, but in a conference room in the Hiton: The Potomac Ballroom Woodlawn room. Instead of going to the back room in Houlihan's, go into the main hotel and stay to the left. Follow the auction sign into the hallway of conference rooms. We'll be the first door on the left before you get to the auction.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
