February Book Club

Good News Everyone! 


We had a poll for this month and you picked Glasshouse by Charles Stross!

From Amazon:

"In the twenty-seventh century, accelerated technology dictates the memories and personalities of people. With most of his own memories deleted, Robin enters The Glasshouse-an experimental polity where he finds himself at the mercy of his own unbalanced psyche."

We will be meeting at Comicazi on Highland Ave in Davis Square. There is metered parking all along Highland as well as a public lot on Day Street near Redbones and across the street from Orleans restaurant. There is also T access and bus connections.

See you there!

-Josh

    HAHA! I found it. You may recall my ramblings about a short story in which someone had slowly altered their body to be a dinosaur, even losing some intelligence.

    I give you "The Other Gun" by Neal Asher. I read it in the April/May 2013 Asimov's Science Fiction.

    Man, I just finish the book and now everybody has to bring up the weather. I guess I'll have to see how bad it gets before deciding if I can make it -_-;;;

      There is no sequel to Glasshouse. Rule 34 follows on from Halting State.

    The weather is an issue for me as I live in a harder hit band and I have to walk to get to the T. Sorry have fun and somebody bring up gender issues please.

    Are we meeting up for dinner before hand?

    I have been swamped lately and I've had this book around but have not been able to even start it, so I think it's unlikely I will be able to finish it by Thursday.

  • Braden D.

    How late do these usually go?

    February 6, 2014

    • Josh

      Hi Braden, the shop closes at 9 so we have a hard stop.

  • Jon W.

    I have a voucher for Mike's for $25 when at least $37 is spent. I'm looking for two more people to help me spend some of this. Who wants in?
