What we're about

The North Country Gaylaxians is the Twin Cities’ chapter of the Gaylactic Network (a national organization for GLBT people and their friends, who are interested in science fiction, fantasy, horror and gaming). We read and discuss Science Fiction / Fantasy / Horror and other speculative fiction with positive GLBT or similar content or by GLBT authors; have regular game nights; and sponsor panel discussions at conventions. Many of our books for discussion are taken from the Spectrum Award or Lambda Awards winners or short lists, but we are always open for suggestions. Our book discussions meet at the Quatrefoil Library at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. We also periodically host Gaylaxicon, a national GLBT science fiction, fantasy, horror and gaming convention that travels around the country.

Virtual Book Discussion: "Fevered Star" by Rebecca Roanhorse

Link visible for attendees

For our July 2002 virtual book discussion we will be reading "Fevered Star" (Between Earth and Sky #2) by Rebecca Roanhorse.

From Goodreads:
There are no tides more treacherous than those of the heart. —Teek saying

The great city of Tova is shattered. The sun is held within the smothering grip of the Crow God’s eclipse, but a comet that marks the death of a ruler and heralds the rise of a new order is imminent.

The Meridian: a land where magic has been codified and the worship of gods suppressed. How do you live when legends come to life, and the faith you had is rewarded?

As sea captain Xiala is swept up in the chaos and currents of change, she finds an unexpected ally in the former Priest of Knives. For the Clan Matriarchs of Tova, tense alliances form as far-flung enemies gather and the war in the heavens is reflected upon the earth.

And for Serapio and Naranpa, both now living avatars, the struggle for free will and personhood in the face of destiny rages. How will Serapio stay human when he is steeped in prophecy and surrounded by those who desire only his power? Is there a future for Naranpa in a transformed Tova without her total destruction?
