What we're about

This group is for those who embrace the philosophy that Nerds are awesome and all things Nerdy can be fun. I want this place to be an open forum for all, and everyone is welcome to invite the group to all their Nerdy events.

Book Club - How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe (+Ready Player 2)

Hi Everyone!

Apologies for being slow to get the next book club up but it's time for another vote! There was interest last time in discussing Ready Player Two so we will set aside some time for that. Since it sounded like most of you hadalready read it, let's also vote on another book to read over the holidays:

- How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu
- A Fire Upon the Deep by Verner Vinge
- All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Here's some more info on each book pulled from various places:

"How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe" is a story of a son searching for his father in quantum space-time - a vast story-space on the outskirts of fiction.

"A Fire Upon the Deep" is a tale of galactic war told on a cosmic scale, where a family of scientists are taken captive by an alien race and used as pawns in a power stuggle.

"All Systems Red" follows a team of scientists and their self-aware robot, whos is scornful of humans and would rather be left alone.

I will close the vote on Sunday 19th December 2021 and we'll have the book club online on Saturday 29th January 2022 at 12 pm (pacific time).

See you then!
Andy
