The Science Fiction Book Club meets in central London England on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month & is open to Men & Women who enjoy discussing the themes & issues found in Science Fiction Novels.

In 2017 the Science Fiction Book Club will be scheduling an occasional series of works exploring the pros and cons of First Contact.

Please Note: This not a group for guys in IT to sit around talking lazers & aliens. For a start 46.1% of our members are women! 

We read, meet & discuss character-led Sci-Fi novels for grown-ups at the more literate end of Science Fiction spectrum. Anything from Atwood to Zelazny that helps us become 'Well Read in SF'.

Our books are usually from the 60's onwards & can include anything from Alternate History, Cyberpunk, Dystopian Sci-Fi, Feminist Science Fiction, 'Literary' Science Fiction, Modern novels with an SF slant, Mundane Science Fiction, New Wave Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic novels, Proto-Science Fiction classics, Scientific Romance, Short Story Collections, Space Opera or even 'Speculative Fiction'.

All the info you would ever possibly need to know about us can be found on the following pages:

To celebrate our 1st birthday we were made Bookgroup of the month by Bookgroup.info. Hurrah for us!

We're 3,088 Replicants
