Hi everyone,

For April, you selected these two Books of the Month:

April Fantasy: The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay
April Science Fiction: The Einstein Intersection by Samuel R. Delany

There are a couple of starter topics up for each book, but please feel free to start more. If anyone wishes to volunteer to lead the discussion for either of these books, please let Candiss or me know!

We also have our schedule set for the next couple of months:

May Fantasy: Jack of Shadows by Roger Zelazny
May Science Fiction: Embassytown by China Miéville

June Fantasy: Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed
June Science Fiction: To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

In series read news, our ongoing discussion of The Honor Harrington series by David Weber is still going strong. We are currently in the middle of book 8, Echoes of Honor, and will begin book 9, Ashes of Victory, on April 15th. Topics for all previous books in the series are still open for discussion, so it's never too late to get involved if you are so inclined.

In short story discussion news, we're repeating last year's project of discussing the stories nominated for the upcoming Nebula Awards, which will be awarded mid-May. The stories are all available for free online. Candiss has set up discussion threads for each of the seven nominated stories, including links to the stories themselves. Please come join us!

That's it for now. Happy reading!

Stefan & Candiss
