What we're about

This is a group for lovers of speculative fiction in the Greater Glasgow area. I was previously a member of a similar group and it was a blast and trying to see if there is any interest on here for a similar group. The goal is to provide a friendly, comfortable atmosphere where popular fiction fans can hang out, meet fellow devotees, and geek out over a shared love of imaginative storytelling.

FANTASY - MAPS & JOURNEYS

Waxy O'Connors

£1.00

Venue - Waxy O'Conners. Tabled room by Tablet Bar, top floor FANTASY - MAPS & JOURNEYS Hi all, for July's meeting we choose one that's been on this "to do" list for a while - Fantasy Maps. So we're reading fantasy books which include Maps because; - the world is so complex you need an atlas to keep track of everything (ala Wheel of Time) or. - to track the Heroes' journey as it progresses (ala The Hobbit), or - both (ala Lord of the Rings) Tracking the Heroes Journey style books - The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien (likely the most famous example) - The Lord of the Rings 1: The Fellowship of the Ring, by JRR Tolkien - Wheel of Time vol 1: Eye of the World, by Robert Jordan (and arguably vols 2-3 as well) - Treasure Island, by Louis Stevenson - A Natural History of Dragons, By Marie Brennan Complex location-heavy worlds - The Lord of the Rings 2&3: Two Towers & Return of the King, by JRR Tolkien - Game of Thrones, by George RR Martin -Wheel of Time vol 4-14, by Robert Jordan (I'm just really plugging his series right now) - Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson Fee: £1 to help with the Meet-up's organisers fee
