We are sci fi fans discovering new classic sci fi and sometimes reveling our past favorites. Primarily focusing on Hugo and Nebula award winners but also nominees and other outstanding sci fi (because come on the trolls have really been wrecking the awards lately).
We meet monthly in Manhattan at various bars near subway stations.
We'll be discussing Magic for Liars, a tale that might speak to those of us who rarely see ourselves as the protagonist of a hero's journey. From the start of NPR's review of Magic for Liars:
"You are not the chosen one. You don't get to leave your humdrum life behind and go to the mysterious school where they teach magic. You will not discover powers you never dreamed you had. The reason you don't fit in socially is not because you're a once-in-a-generation sorcerer. Your blemishes and aches and colds and unfulfilled longings will not miraculously fade away as you become the marvelous creature you were always meant to be. You are not magic.
But your twin sister is."
