Fifth Season by NK Jemison (suggested by Liz B)
THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS... FOR THE LAST TIME.

A season of endings has begun.

It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent,
spewing ash that blots out the sun.

It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.

It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the
earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldan
2/23/27 discussion recap

Chris H
To tie in with our monthly theme of Changing Channels - TV and its influence on genre, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon was
our selection. It was written in 1991 over 25 years ago and was so popular and enduring, that a TV series was developed
and is in its third season on Starz.  Some had read it when it first came out and reread parts or all of it. The consensus
was, though the paperback ran 850 pages, the time travel story of Claire Randall going from the 1945 British Isles to 1743
Scotland, was extremely well written.  The story held one's attention throughout. Highly recommended.
