Coming up for it's second birthday Aberdeen.ScienceFictionBookClub.org is starting 2016 in style by meeting to discuss the Iain M. banks classic "The Player of Games" on January 14th 2016.
The Aberdeen Science Fiction Book Club meets on the second Thursday of every month in central Aberdeen and is open to women and men interested in meeting like-minded people with an interest in science-fiction novels and short stories.
Every month they read a book from their reading list, set in advance by their undemocratically chosen Leaders, then meet up to discuss what they liked or disliked about it. Simple. And it's free!
