This is the place to nominate a Contemporary Fantasy or Science Fiction novel for our March group read and discussion (beginning March 21.) A contemporary novel would typically have been first published in the 21st century.

You can review past nominees and selections in the Group's Bookshelf. (If you wish to continue a discussion of one of our past group selections, all those discussion topics are still open in our Book Discussions area.)

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. Note that if your nomination is selected by the group, we'll be expecting you to take the lead in the discussion.

Note that these are nominations for our March discussion topic. Miéville's The City & the City has already been selected as our February Contemporary Novel topic.

Nominations will be open through Wednesday, February 4, when I'll collect the nominees and post a poll so members can choose among them.

I've read a bunch of Tidhar's short SF/F over the last few years in various mags. Some I liked (Whaliens), some not so much (Memcordist). Might be interesting to try a novel...

Andreas I loved Memcordist :)
Osama has been sitting on my shelf since I read that one.
