Whether they be modern authors like James Rollins, Clive Cussler, or David Wood, or perhaps something more classic like Harold Lamb, H. Rider Haggard, or Edgar Rice Burroughs, this is the place for you. I hope to encourage a Book Club/Group Read of all sorts of books. I plan to run it through a poll where we would vote what books to read next, choose the top two to read, giving each a month's time. That way, after the first book is finished, we can vote for the next pair.

[close] I'm Matthew Davenport, a writer of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. My works are available through most major retailers. I write a lot of short stories and have three novels out currently. I'm also a writer of Serialized Adventure, which you can also find through most major retailers. My first novel RANDOM STRANGER was hailed as an Epic Urban Fantasy story and the sequel, STRANGER BOOKS,has also done well. My most recent novel THE TRIALS OF OBED MARSH follows the descent of the town of Innsmouth as portrayed in the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. Please feel free to use this site to ask me any questions and I'll do my best to answer them all.

[close] Beloved author Barbara Mertz, pen name (among others) Elizabeth Peters, died in August 2013, and this group will be a kind of memorial to her and her Egyptian archeological novels. Her delightful duo, Amelia (Peabody) and (Radcliffe) Emerson were both prone to pronouncements.
