    FnF Book Club

    Hey, guys. I thought it might be fun to start a book club. I'd created the group a while back, but in Oct/Nov/Dec, with everything else going on and the holidays, it never much got off the ground.

    No obligations, of course, but if you're interested, post here or join the group (thought by establishing the group we'd all be more centrally located to join in the discussion when ready, but you don't have to join the group to take part in the book discussion!). I figured with the summer vacation around the corner, we might have some time for reading (ah ha ha ha ha haaaaa! -- yeah, I feel better now ).

    Haven't determined a book, so suggestions are welcome.

    That's wonderful, butterflylover -- it'll be great to have a book discussion! If you want to join the group, it's listed under the "Community" tab up top, under "Groups." You can take part in picking the book and chatting about it without joining the group, though. Either way is great!

    Anything in particular you'd like to read?

    Me too! I'll do a little research into some different books available in those genres and post a poll; see which ones people would like to read!

    @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- and certainly anyone else interested in discussing the chosen book at the start of July (maybe a little later depending on when we choose/get the book, etc.). Hope I haven't forgotten anyone.

    I've added a few sci fi/fantasy books here, but please feel free to add some more or nix the ones I've put up; we can put up a poll and vote.

    Choices so far (and listed in parentheses following the titles/authors are descriptions from amazon):

    Piers Anthony, the Xanth series, first book is A Spell for Chameleon
    (Xanth was the enchanted land where magic ruled--where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. That is, except for Bink of North Village. He was sure he possessed no magic, and knew that if he didn't find some soon, he would be exiled. According to the Good Magician Humpfrey, the charts said that Bink was as powerful as the King or even the Evil Magician Trent. Unfortunately, no one could determine its form. Meanwhile, Bink was in despair. If he didn't find his magic soon, he would be forced to leave....)


    Sleeping in Flame, Jonathan Carroll
    (Walker Easterling is a retired actor turned successful screenwriter living in the Vienna of strong coffee, fascinating friends, and mysterious cafes. When he falls in love with Maris York, a beautiful artist who creates cities, his life becomes alive in fantastic and unsettling ways. As Walker's love for Maris grows, his life gets more and more bizarre-he discovers he can see things happening just before they happen, and at the same time feels an incredibly strong tug from his past-so a friend steers him to Venasque, an odd little man reputed to be a powerful shaman. Venasque helps Walker discover and unravel his many interconnected past lives, and it is soon clear that an unresolved conflict from these past lives has resurfaced, and now threatens to undo Walker and Maris's love.

    At once lyrical, frightening, funny, and sexy, Sleeping in Flame is a spellbinding tale where reality and fantasy merge in astonishing convolutions of magic and suspense. It confirms that Jonathan Carroll is one of the very few novelists who-by constantly surprising us-give us an entirely new perspective on our world. It is no wonder that he is generally considered to be the most original and provocative novelist of his generation.)


    American Gods, Neil Gaiman
    (American Gods is Neil Gaiman's best and most ambitious novel yet, a scary, strange, and hallucinogenic road-trip story wrapped around a deep examination of the American spirit. Gaiman tackles everything from the onslaught of the information age to the meaning of death, but he doesn't sacrifice the razor-sharp plotting and narrative style he's been delivering since his Sandman days.
    Shadow gets out of prison early when his wife is killed in a car crash. At a loss, he takes up with a mysterious character called Wednesday, who is much more than he appears. In fact, Wednesday is an old god, once known as Odin the All-father, who is roaming America rounding up his forgotten fellows in preparation for an epic battle against the upstart deities of the Internet, credit cards, television, and all that is wired. Shadow agrees to help Wednesday, and they whirl through a psycho-spiritual storm that becomes all too real in its manifestations. For instance, Shadow's dead wife Laura keeps showing up, and not just as a ghost--the difficulty of their continuing relationship is by turns grim and darkly funny, just like the rest of the book.

    Armed only with some coin tricks and a sense of purpose, Shadow travels through, around, and underneath the visible surface of things, digging up all the powerful myths Americans brought with them in their journeys to this land as well as the ones that were already here. Shadow's road story is the heart of the novel, and it's here that Gaiman offers up the details that make this such a cinematic book--the distinctly American foods and diversions, the bizarre roadside attractions, the decrepit gods reduced to shell games and prostitution. "This is a bad land for Gods," says Shadow.)
