Like reading sci fi or fiction but hate watching your friends'/coworkers'/partner's eyes glaze over when you talk about it?

You've come to the right place, friend. This is a book club for those who've read, are interested in or are interested in getting interested in Fantasy and/or Sci-Fi books. Whether from up and coming authors like Patrick Rothfuss and Paolo Baciogalupi to veterans like Octavia Butler, George RR Martin, and Ursula LeGuin all the way to the golden era of Asimov and Clarke. High literature, military sci-fi, high fantasy, paranormal young adult fiction; f you've read it then prepare to bring your knowledge to bear, as we discuss books and share recommendations for good reads. Anyone of any age from anywhere can join as long as they're willing to speak up and share their thoughts.

For information about how the club is organized see our FAQ.

Live long and prosper
