About the Sci Fi & Fantasy Book Club

The Sci Fi & Fantasy Book Club was founded in January 2013 by Jim Placzkiewicz, aka horror writer Jim Pyer. The first book we read was Jim’s pick, Cloud Atlas, which no one liked much. Since then we’ve read many excellent books - some more loved than others. Regardless of the book choice, we always have a good time discussing it and whatever other books, movies, tv series, and geeky subjects that come up during the conversation.

How do we choose what books to read? Everyone attending gets to add a title to our reading list. We pick one to read each month - usually the one we’ve been able to acquire the most copies of. Rinse and repeat until they’re all read, then we start a new list. You can view the complete list of books we’ve read on our web site at HereBeBooksAndGames.com/book-club/

If you’re not already a member of our Book Club, you’re welcome to join us. Just read the current book selection and come to the next meeting. You can sign up to receive automatic updates and reminders via our Meetup group right here.

Happy reading and geeky discussing!
