February 13, 2014 Meetup: Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

The January 9, 2014 Meetup for Dan Chaon's short story collection "Among the Missing" was cancelled due to snow and bad road conditions, and because all but one member were among the missing. 

Our next book will be as previously scheduled, Robert Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land."   Among the Missing will be rescheduled for the March Meetup. 

About Stranger in a Strange Land, David N. Samuelson wrote in Critical Encounters: Writers and Themes in Science Fiction, "in some ways emblematic of the Sixties. . . . It fit the iconoclastic mood of the time, attacking human folly under several guises, especially in the person or persons of the Establishment: government, the military, organized religion. By many of its readers, too, it was taken to advocate a religion of love, and of incalculable power, which could revolutionize human affairs and bring about an apocalyptic change, presumably for the better."

    It was a pleasure to meet up with such congenial people. The discussion of the book was also really worthwhile and interesting.

    I am interested in learning more about this group. Unfortunately I have a work event I must attend this Thursday although Thursday is usually a good day for me. What is the next book?

    Do you have a list of books that might be discussed in upcoming meetups? I would like to get a head start on reading, if possible.
