What we're about

This is a group for people interested in the geekier things in life. Hopefully it will be a place to meet new people with shared interests and meet ups could include games or films nights as well as discussions online about sci-fi or fantasy books or comic books. Interested?

Oxford SFF Book Club - Shadow & Bone

Online event

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold - a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.

Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country's magical military elite - and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.

As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.

Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.

Oxford Sci-Fi & Fantasy Writing Group Meetup

Online event

Come chat with fellow writers about all things sci-fi and fantasy. Let us know what you're working on.

During the pandemic, we have suspended physical meetups, but we are still meeting online via Skype to offer feedback on writing submissions. If you are interested, please message me your email address, and I will add you to the group mailing list.

We’ve got a Google Calendar, Facebook, and Messenger chat that we use to coordinate. Most of our core doesn't sign up on Meetup for each event, so don't be intimidated if there aren’t many people signed up via Meetup. :)

Members sign up to submit their writing to the group via the Google Calendar. We meet on the last Saturday of each month to offer feedback on the writing.

Oxford SFF Book Club - Hyperion

Hyperion by Dan Simmons

On the eve of disaster, with the entire galaxy at war, seven pilgrims set fourth on a final voyage to the legendary Time Tombs on Hyperion, home to the Shrike, a lethal creature, part god and part killing machine, whose powers transcend the limits of time and space. The pilgrims have resolved to die before discovering anyhting less than the secrets of the universe itself.
