Science Fiction Book Club

  • Nightbird Books 205 West Dickson Street Fayetteville, AR, 72701 United States

Our great Sci-Fi Book Club meets the 4th Monday of each month at 6:45pm. The group is always fun and welcoming, so give them a try one month. Their reading selections vary between old school scifi, fantasy, and new scifi trends. You are certain to find a book you will enjoy.

The November selection is Pavane by Keith Roberts.

Considered Keith Roberts' masterwork, this novel consists of linked short stories (six measures and a coda) set in a twentieth century where the Roman Catholic Church controls the western world, and has done so since Queen Elizabeth of England was assassinated in 1588. The Protestant Reformation never happened. The Inquisition thrives. And a tyrannical Rome maintains its power in a Dark Age, by limiting knowledge, outlawing electricity and curbing technology.
