Geeky Book Club

  • Nov 25, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Join us for our next Geeky Book Club, where we will be discussing the two books we picked at our last meetup:

"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins

"Elric of Melnibone" by Michael Moorecock

Read one or two books, whatever you have the time for. If you're a newcomer and haven't read the books, don't worry, you're still welcome to come and join in the discussion. Remember, you can only vote on the next round of books if you come to the meeting. If you like, go ahead and suggest books in the comments so we can check them out ahead of time. Discussions will be informal and meetings will probably last a couple of hours (longer if we're really enjoying ourselves).

I hope to see you there!


A note on "Elric": If anyone's having trouble finding copies of this one, let me know and I can either help direct you to the correct omnibus or we can delay it til next month to give us more time to find the darn thing.

    If anyone is still having trouble with the book I found a good ebook copy for free. Let me know & I will send you the file.

      This is the book that I downloaded. My friend ordered hers from amazon. I will make sure they are the same once hers arrives.

    Finally got the book online for Elric. We'll read as much as we can before the meeting. I've been a little distracted by The Illustrated Man, so sorry for the procrastination with getting the Elric book.

    Still looking locally for Elric. Had zero luck with the bookstores when we were in Sonora. Gonna check out the libraries next

      It's a pretty obscure one. You may need to turn to Amazon. Joshua seems to have found it there. If you can't find it, we'll postpone it til next month and you can borrow my copy. No worries :)

    I was, but amazon has them on the cheap, and it looks like a keeper :)

    Is anyone having trouble finding "Elric"?

    So, I found an essay by Moorecock that's all about why he dislikes J.R.R Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, etc. It's called "Epic Pooh" (as in Winnie the Pooh), and you can read it here:

    "Anyone who hates hobbits can't be all bad" I love Michael Moorecock :D
