Stop by Park Road Books at 7pm on June 12th to discuss Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie. From Nebula and Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning debut author, Ann Leckie, comes a stunning space opera that asks what it means to be human in a universe guided by artificial intelligence.
On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest. Breq is both more than she seems and less than she was. Years ago, she was the "Justice of Toren"--a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of corpse soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy. An act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with only one fragile human body. And only one purpose--to revenge herself on Anaander Mianaai, many-bodied, near-immortal Lord of the Radch.
(You can always pick up the book at Park Road Books for 20% off this month, but we welcome any version during the book club, paper or electronic.)
As usual, we will go down to Sir Edmund Halley's restaurant (in the same shopping center) for more informal conversation (& food & drinks) after the book club.
