The Orange County Science Fiction Club was founded in 1982 for fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy. We build our club activities around our meeting on the last Wednesday of every month. We usually have a guest speaker, often an author, but anyone with an association with things Science Fictional is considered. The club also has a SF reader's group and a writer's group attached to it.
Our January meeting will be an open meeting. We'll be going over club business and reviewing upcoming events for the year, which won't take long. Then we'll just chit-chat.
You can see further details of our club at website (http://ocsfc.org/)
The OCSF club reader's group meets on the second Wednesday of every month to discuss our book selection. The discussion starts at 7pm, but most of us come between 6 pm and 6:30 pm for dinner and a chat.
This month's book is Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, and while she was raised by werewolves, she can never be one of them, especially after the pack ran her off for having a forbidden love affair. So she’s turned her talent for fixing cars into a business and now runs a one-woman mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State. Only, just when you thought you were out of the pack, events drag you back in.
