Next Meetup

Gridlinked by Neal Asher
When we have a five week gap between meetups I like to set some books that might usually get rejected due to length, and this one has been requested by a few members on a number of occasions. Science fiction spies always get my attention, love seeing how they operate in a world of advanced technologies. A unique blend of sf sub-genres, fast paced action and unexpected plot twists help this story rise above your average SF cop story. ECS agent Ian Cormac investigates a star gate disaster while being pursued by terrorist leader Adrian Pelter.

What we're about

Public Group

Who we are:

The Aberdeen Science Fiction Book Club meets on the second Thursday of every month in central Aberdeen. We want to be an inclusive group, and we welcome women and men of all ages and backgrounds who want to share their interest in Science-Fiction writing, or who simply want to learn more about SF.

What we do:

Every month we will read the book from the reading list, set in advance by your un-democratically chosen Leaders, then meet up over drinks to give everybody their moment to say what they felt about what we just read - what you liked, what you didn't like, or just what made you laugh or cry. We also have sporadic cinema nights on those blessed occasions that an SF movie receives a general cinema release! In a rare concession to that unreliable friend democracy, movie nights will be announced by email and then arranged to suit the majority of those who are interested.

What we read:

We try to avoid the so-called 'classics' and multi-part series from month to month so that we can try something different every time. Everything from Alternative Histories and new fiction with SF themes to Hard Science Fiction and Space Opera is fair game. We are always open to suggestion, so please just message one of the organisers and we'll add your suggestions to the growing list!

Membership and attendance:

It is free to join the Aberdeen Science Fiction Book Club. However, to give everyone a chance to join the discussion, we will try to limit each meet up to around 15 people should there be a high demand.
