Speculative Fiction Book Club: Joe Haldeman, The Forever War
Every second Friday of the month at 7.30 pm we, the English speaking clientele of the Otherland Bookshop, meet to discuss a selected science fiction, fantasy or horror book and enjoy snacks and drinks in our favourite bookstore.
If you, too, enjoy reading speculative fiction and you're interested, you're more than welcome to join us! No registration required, just drop in.
Check out the Otherlander's Blog for further information, including all dates and current books as well as reviews of all the books we've read.
This month, Joe Haldeman's The Forever War is on. This classical science fiction and anti-war novel is inspired by Haldeman's experiences in the Vietnam war.
Here's our plan for the next few months:
August 11th: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
September 8th: The Earthsea Quartet by Ursula K. Le Guin
(You may want to start reading this one, because it comprises the first four books of the Earthsea cycle. It was scheduled for September so everybody has enough time to finish it).
