What we're about

The Sci Fi Book Club was founded in 2014 as a way to formally explore the genre of Science Fiction. With books ranging from classics to new releases and from novels to short stories, we aim for diversity in our selections.

Club members have one month to read the book the group has agreed on. We meet in Manhattan on the third Sunday of each month to talk about our reading and all things Sci Fi. Our hope is that members will come ready to contribute to the conversation both in their thoughts on the given book and with any insight into related media that might inform our discussion.

Occassionally we will all decide to take some extra time on a book, but members should plan on four weeks to complete the reading. You do not have to have finished the book to come to the meeting. We hope to see you either way, there's always plenty to talk about.

"Recursion" by Blake Crouch

Online event

Hi everyone!

By popular selection, our book for October is the 2019 Blake Crouch novel "Recursion". Crouch is always an interesting read and it looks like he's taking us on another wild trip. Goodreads says it is "at once a relentless pageturner and an intricate science-fiction puzzlebox about time, identity, and memory".

"Recursion" revolves around two different stories, an NYC cop investigating a debilitating new affliction dubbed False Memory Syndrome and a neuroscientist working on new technology. This should be an interesting character-driven narrative that will surely leave us thinking. Enjoy!

To join a Book Club meeting, all you will need is YOURSELF. If you haven’t had a chance to finish the book, we still would love for you to join us in the discussion.


One quick note that, as some of you may know, Meetup as removed the Polls option from their platform. Therefore we're making the switch over to Google Forms on months we need to poll for the book of the month.

We'll be meeting on October 24th for this month as I have a work commitment on the 17th.
