What we're about

Calling all Glaswegian nerds and geeks!

We're looking to hold a monthly get together in Glasgow for like-minded individuals who enjoy all things geeky - Sci-fi, Doctor Who, Star Trek (and Wars!), Harry Potter, Marvel, DC, anime, cosplay, comics, board games etc.

The idea is to meet up, have a drink or two, get to know each other and make some new friends in and around the city.

Follow us on the Fediverse/Mastodon at https://glasgow.social/tags/geeksocial (Don't know what that is?  It's open source decentralised social media - no corporations involved! Sign up at https://glasgow.social - or any other site - it's all interconnected - like the internet should be!)

We also have a Matrix chat room at #geek:glasgow.social (you can join with this invite link: https://glasgow.social/matrix).

Sci-fi Book Group (3rd Wednesdays) - Joe Haldeman

The Bon Accord

A regular book group night to discuss sci-fi and expand our reading horizons!

This month we voted to read anything by award winning sci-fi author Joe Haldeman. So pick a Haldeman novel and join us for some interesting discussions.

One of my favourite novels of his was The Forever War. This time I'm thinking of reading The Accidental Time Machine.

Here's a list of some of his most popular works:

The topic for our next book group might be first encounters, robots, etc - we'll decide on the night depending on people's interests. Feel free to submit a suggestion in the comments below.

Looking forward to some interesting discussions!

As always, you can join our chat room on matrix at #bookgroup:glasgow.social (if you don't already have access to matrix, you can sign up at https://glasgow.social/matrix).
