This is a list of books we're currently (and tentatively) considering for the future. None of them are locked in, and the actual selections will change based on member suggestions, new books that come out and various other factors. But if you want to read ahead, or just enjoy what look to be some excellent sci-fi and fantasy books, give some of these a try.

If you have any suggestions or comments on the books we have forthcoming, please bring them up at an upcoming meetup or send in a message.
