Please join us as we discuss On Basilisk Station by David Weber. Occasionally described as "Horatio Hornblower in space", this outstanding military science fiction novel weds the best of 19th century British naval adventures with interesting technologies and cultures across a complex interstellar politico-economic backdrop. Although the novel is the first in the Honor Harrington series, the story stands alone very well. The book is a fairly quick read, at about 458 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. The smaller morning discussion can be found here.
Honor Harrington has been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.
*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!
