Ottawa Science Fiction and Fantasy Readers Pages

We meet to discuss science fiction and fantasy titles we have selected and read together. Although you do not have to complete the book in order to participate, the scheduled reading is the priority.

Meetings schedule

  • Main monthly meetup: the second Tuesday, with a repeat for the same title on the third Thursday of each month, 7pm
  • Occasional additional meetup: usually the last Tuesday of the month, 7pm - these are scheduled for sequels, alternative titles, graphic novels and other irregular or frowned upon stuff
  • Short stories: usually monthly-ish (floating)
  • Board games: Sundays (floating)
Location
Downtown Royal Oak, 188 Bank Street; private room (Roxy). This location is wheelchair accessible - please contact the staff or the organizer if you have any questions.

Meetup format
The meetups have round table / open-discussion format. The format will ultimately depend on the host's preferences, and might be centered around specific discussion points.

Reading selection
The suggestions are taken from the members, and decided by voting, usually by having a 'host' who proposes a few titles each month. Refer to Book Selections page for details. This is the list of all our past readings.

Attendance
Please update your RSVPs in a timely fashion and as soon as you know you will not attend, especially when there is a waiting list. More than 2 no-shows, or repeated less than 24-hour cancellations (without an explanation), and you may be bumped to the waiting list for future meetups.

Conduct
Everyone is expected to exhibit respectful behavior towards others at all times. Offensive or inappropriate conduct or comments of any kind that make others uncomfortable will not be tolerated.
Ours are social events, and alcohol consumption is acceptable, as long as you keep it under control and stay sociable and friendly. Keep it pleasant and refrain from negative, explicit or disruptive comments or behavior.

If you have any suggestions or concerns with any aspect of the meetup, feel free to contact the organizer. Thanks!
