Please use this topic to nominate a Classic Science Fiction or Fantasy novel, anthology or novella you wish to discuss as a group in June (beginning June 1.)

(A Classic novel would typically have been published prior to 2000 and be considered a popular, trailblazing or important work of science fiction or fantasy. Presumably, any actual "classic" is still in print!)

You need not have read the title you are nominating; after all, you'll be reading along. Feel free to say why you are making the nomination, if you care to. If your nomination is selected by the group, you'll be expected to take the lead in the discussion.

We read & discuss up to three SF/F books each month: One is a "Classic" SF/F book (novel, anthology, novella or other story) which was written before 2000; that discussion starts on the 1st of each month. One is a "Contemporary" SF/F book, which was written after 2000; that discussion starts on the 21st of each month. We may also read one book from a series, as part of reading the entire series; that discussion starts the 11th of the month. You can always check on our upcoming SF/F book discussion topics by scrolling down on the Group Homepage to the "Upcoming Reads” section.

You can review past group selections in the "read" section of our Group's BookShelf. If you wish to continue a discussion of one of those past selections, all those discussion topics are still open in our Book Discussions area.

Note that this is our discussion selection for June. The Gods Themselves has already been selected as our June Classic Novel discussion topic.

Nominations will be open through Sunday, April 14, when I'll collect the nominees and post a poll so members can choose among them.

Andrea | 2663 comments Wow, still only one vote each. Maybe with summer coming people are planning to be outside rather than reading :)
