Hugo & Nebula Award Winner - The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov

  • Needs a location

  • Interested in reading a book that won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards? Some of these the group has all ready read so let's try and read books that will be new to the group or at least that have not been read recently by the group.

    For July we will read The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov.

    "The Gods Themselves is a 1972 science fiction novel written by Isaac Asimov. It won the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1972, and the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1973.

    The book is divided into three main parts, originally published in Galaxy Magazine and Worlds of If as three consecutive stories.

    The main plot-line is a project by aliens who inhabit a parallel universe (the para-Universe) with different physical laws from this one. By exchanging matter with Earth, they seek to exploit these differences in physical laws. The exchange of matter provides an alternative source of energy in their dying Universe. However, the exchange of physical laws will have the ultimate result of turning the Earth's Sun into a supernova, and possibly even turning a large part of the Milky Way into a quasar which, in turn, provides more energy for the para-Universe."

    Suggestions or what to read and where to meet are welcome!
