This month book is unique as it is a graphic novel:
Murder Mysteries P. Craig Russell, Neil Gaiman
The bulk of the story is an account of the first murder in the history of the universe.
There was a break taken from the online community. But I think it shall be retaken up. So I will be posting at the 1st of each month - one book for the month. Every two weeks I will be posting short stories or links to short films. Please feel free to comment on each item. And have fun. Hopefully we will as a group discover new worlds.
Right now all activities will be taking place online, until there is enough generated interest to meet in person offline.
This came in handy today, as I'm making a command decision and posting this month's book without any input from anyone, and choosing it somewhat randomly at that. My counterpart has succumbed to a deluge of end of the quarter assignments and such, and so I decided randomly picking a book was better than not having one at all. The leader *was* Giant Bones by Peter S. Beagle, until I did some research and found that it was ridiculously hard to find a copy on short notice. Sorry. Maybe we will schedule it after everyone has a chance to hunt one down. The other factor that went into chosing this month is that since it was only Brian and Lydie and I to discuss last month, I want to pick something that none of us has read. (Hopefully I have at least accomplished that much.)
So now without further ado, and with a blanket disclaimer as to its merits, having been chosen most un-scientifically and on the fly (as it were), the book for the lusty month of May is:
Girl in Landscape by Jonathan Lethem.
It seems to be readily available at Barnes and Nobel:
Our next meeting is on June 7th.
Please direct any complaints to the Management. We will read them carefully before summarily discarding them.
Our next meeting is tomorrow!
Even if you haven't finished the book - show up anyway.(We like warm bodies)
And for all our online members anything/questions you would like discussed at the meeting please post. And will post the responses.
Remember all members can post - if you wish to write your review of the books please do - just remember lj-cut and tag the entries with spoilers.
