Love science fiction? Manchester's Sci-Fi Book Club needs you - tomorrow!

If you like Sci-Fi then get yourself down to the Madlab tomorrow night for the Manchester Science Fiction Book Club.

Community hack space Madlab (aka Manchester Digital Laboratory) host the book club, which has been running for a year now. Meetings are very informal and have been known to involve pizza and a pint...

Over the past year we've covered classic sci-fi authors J.G. Ballard, Joe Haldeman, Arthur C. Clarke and Ursula K Le Guin, the first woman author on the list. More recent books include China MiĆ©ville's The City and the City, Iain M Bank's The Player of Games and Andreas Eschbach's The Carpet Makers, only recently translated into English from German. 

If you'd like more information email me s.lawson[at]manchester.gov.uk or tweet me @shedsue or even talk to me on 0161 234 1938. You can also join the Google Group  and use the #mcrsf hashtag if  you are on twitter. Sarah-Clare Conlon and Adrian Slatcher have blogged about the book club and there's more information on the MadLab website.

You don't have to have read anything for tomorrow night's meeting. It's a general meeting to welcome new members and choose future books to read. See you there?

Tomorrow's meeting is at 7pm the Madlab,  36-40 Edge Street, Manchester M4 1HN
(Between Thomas St and the Craft Centre, opposite A Bar Called Common).
