Why do you want to join this group?

I want to meet other people that are into sci-fi/fantasy books, but of course. Also would like to read more good ones.

What is your favorite SFF book?

Gosh that's tough. Probably VALIS by Philip K. Dick. Reading it for the first time was such a life-changing experience. I also really loved Vonnegut's Sirens of Titan and Slaughterhouse-Five. I quite like "literary" fiction that has sci-fi elements, like a lot of George Saunders' short stories and David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest.

How often would you like to meet?

Once a month is fine.

Tell us a little bit about yourself...

I'm a grad student in library science, specializing in archives and digital systems. I live in CT but I go to school in NYC. I'm doing an internship at WNYC Archives, learning to catalog and splice tape. I love music, books, my friends and my cat. I'm also a musician (guitar mainly) and I love reading books on music theory and history as well as sci-fi, fantasy and "literary" (non-genre) fiction. I also listen to a lot of podcasts, especially comedy nerd ones like WTF with Marc Maron.

What Michael P. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's a bunch of people who know more about sci-fi/fantasy than I do. I approve.
