Our great Sci-Fi Book Club meets the 4th Monday of each month at 7pm. 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 April selection is Consider Phlebas by Ian M Banks.
"The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Culture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender.
Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it. It was the fate of Horza, the Changer, and his motley crew of unpredictable mercenaries, human and machine, actually to find it, and with it their own destruction."
