This group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month to discuss various works of modern
masters or upcoming talent in SF, fantasy, paranormal, horror and related genres. It also
occasionally explores classics and the 'masters' of the classics.

*For the complete list of titles for 2020 scroll below event recap.  You will find all 12
bookcovers/titles.

Tade Thompson's Rosewater is the start of an award-winning, cutting edge
trilogy set in Nigeria, by one of science fiction's most engaging new voices.

Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a
mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and
the helpless—people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its
rumored healing powers.

Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the
biodome, and doesn't care to again—but when something begins killing off
others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing
his dark history and coming to a realization about a horrifying future.

Blood and Tempest by John Skovron
3/26/2020

Chris H
Because of the ongoing health crisis, we were not able to meet. We did, however, finish the Empire of Storms trilogy by
Jon Skovron. The three books were titled Hope and Red / Bane and Shadow / Blood and Tempest. The main protagonists
were Hope and Red throughout. Our 3rd times a charm theme was well represented, though all three books in the series
were very well done, with great writing as well as compelling, consistent characters. A truly fine trilogy.
