“ A huge fleet comprised of thousands of large naval and other seaworthy vessels from almost every nation on earth laid in wait off the coasts of the United States of America. The ships were stationary, poised and ready, positioned miles out to sea but still within plain view of every major port city, along every coastal waterway on all three sides of the great North American land mass. ”

[close] Reading books for a monthly club doesn't always work out. This book club is for sharing books you love or want to talk about, especially (but not limited to) sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and non-fiction that might inform speculative fiction in interesting ways. Keeping the group private for now as a way to interact with RL connections, but I'll invite anyone a group member wants to include!
