The next meeting of the Cuenca SciFi and Fantasy Discussion Group will be:
* Date: this coming Thursday, June 8th
* Time: noon
* Place: Golden Prague Pub
The book for this month is:
* Plague Birds, by Jason Sanford
This is the last book in the 2022 Nebula Awards nominee list that we’ve been driving off of (the Nebula Awards are given out by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association). Plague Birds is set in a post-apocalyptic future where machine AIs have merged with select humans to rule the remnants of civilization — hopefully benevolently…
For anyone who hasn’t been to the Golden Prague Pub, you can find it under that name in Google Maps. It’s directly across the street from the Supermaxi El Vergel, 2 blocks south of Parque de la Madre on Alfonso Cordero. The place opens at noon — if you get there early, the gates will be closed, but the Supermaxi has a couple of benches outside on the upper level.
Anyone who finds themselves available and wants to show up is welcome. (It’s not at all required to have read the monthly book first, but be warned that its discussion will likely involve spoilers.) This is intended to be a general geek-interest reading/discussion group. Subjects could involve scifi/fantasy fiction and movies, anime, tech, gaming, a book-of-the-month reading, and so forth. Friendly arguments — such as about which SciFi awards list we should be reading from next, or whether it’s better to stay up late to catch the only English-with-Spanish-subtitles showings of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in a Cuenca theater or skip the late showings and dodge spoilers for 6 months while waiting for it to stream — are entirely likely.
If you have any questions, feel free to post them below and I’ll keep an eye on this space to answer them.
Thursday, June 8th, noon, free
Golden Prague Pub, Calle Alfonso Cordero y Av. Jose Peralta
