Nominate a favorite Sci-fi here for our February read. As long as it's Sci-fi, anything counts!

Lena, would you mind narrowing that down to one book?

Ok, since I wrote it, I can make it freely available for the group to read at some point. And I appreciate all comments! I hope you have an amazing year, by the way!

Im going to nominate The Islanders by Christopher Priest--sounds like a trippy time-space thing, and that osunds like a good idea to me!

Art Hey everyone, sorry for the zombie thread post, I was just wondering if there is anything planned in terms of random read for the month of March. I am skipping Helliconia series this time around and would love to have an alternative title to read and discuss with others.

Oh, I must confess I've also joined another group that focuses on Hugo winners and nominees, so in case there's nothing planned for March, it's all good.

Lena We are reading The Found and the Lost The Collected Novellas of Ursula K. Le Guin by Ursula K. Le Guin


message 20: by Art (new)

Art I see, thanks a lot. I will just have to take your word on that, since I still haven't found the thread where you discussed it. In any case, doubt I have a copy of that.


message 21: by Lena (new)

Lena The thread hasn’t started but if you look in the polls section you’ll see that’s what we voted on. Ursula Le Guin has won Hugo’s and recently passed away.


message 22: by Art (new)

Art Much obliged, Lena. Thanks for clearing it up.
