[close] The greatest enemy of art and of suicide is the world's indifference. -Quentin S. Crisp, from All God's Angels, Beware! Mission: A group dedicated, in deference, to reading and discussing the output of this fascinating and vital imprint. This group exists to promote awareness of Chômu Press and its writers by disseminating news and information of a related nature. Disclaimer (of sorts): The Friends of Chômu Press (FCP) are not affiliated with Chômu Press, but are brought together by a love of thought-provoking reading and the myriad "vistas of irreality" evoked by Chômu Press and its authors.

[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!
