Reading great (and probably some not-so-great) science fiction and fantasy works!
The LA Sci-Fi & Fantasy Book Club meets once a month at a coffee shop, restaurant, park, beach, or some other nice place, to discuss a fantasy or sci-fi book (around 400 pages max). We'll discuss the book and probably a lot of other stuff, and choose book for the next month based on a theme. Everyone should bring a talking point or two, and if it's not a restaurant-like setting, a snack. And repeat, ad infinitum.
I will also host the Dootstopper Series for longer books. Longer books deserve discussion, too. These meetups will occur less often and outside the normal monthy series. The meetings will probably be a bit more upscale as well, and certainly longer.
