The books chosen for 13 March are:
Sci-Fi: Ringworld by Larry Niven
Fantasy: The Sheepfarmer's Daughter (book 1 of The Deed of Paksanarian) by Elizabeth Moon
Urban Fantasy: The Ocean at the End of The Lane by Neil Gaiman
Organiser's comment: By default, it is highly recommended that all members read Storm Front (book 1 of The Dresden Files) by Jim Butcher... As it is AWESOME and many people in the Sci-Fi meet up group have read his books! I could be a bit biased though!!!!! ;-). It is not one of the books chosen for March. I think I've already converted many people to Dresden prior to this group commencing, thus the comment!
If you would like to join us on our good reads group, where you can put future book suggestions, and read some information about our upcoming books, please visit us at: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/109091-melbourne-sci--fi-fantasy-meet-up-book-review-group
I have also started putting a couple of discussion groups on the good reads group. At the moment there is a discussion group on Australian Authors and one on Stand Alone Fantasy novels. Feel free to add your comments to these discussions.
The group starts at 7pm. We normally order dinner at this time, and they deliver it part way through the meeting. Ordering food is not compulsory, however, if you wish to order some dinner, meals will normally cost between $16 - $30.
I have also booked the back room for the remainder of the year for our meet ups. Please pencil these dates in your diary. I won't actually set up the next meet up until the books have been chosen.
