The group is open to new members. Friend us on Facebook, come by for the meetings, shop us for new titles. Each year we will read and discuss both new and classic works which will then be the basis for a panel discussion at Archon.  Our desire is to keep the books alive and enrich and expand the presence of great science fiction on the page for readers old and new.
