Hey gang! 

Our next meeting will be September 23, and we will be discussing This Is How You Lose the Time War. Hope to see y'all there! 

For our October meeting, on Saturday the 28th, we will be meeting to discuss Nona the Ninth, book three in Tamsyn Muir's indescribable Locked Tomb series. There's still plenty of time to catch up with Gideon the Ninth and Harrow the Ninth before then - hope to see y'all there!

 

We have a Discord server! Hate parking downtown? Nervous about groups? Need to gush about books more than once a month? Please join us on Discord!

* HUGO AWARD WINNER: BEST NOVELLA * NEBULA AND LOCUS AWARDS WINNER: BEST NOVELLA *

Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandment finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading.
Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, becomes something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.
Except the discovery of their bond would mean the death of each of them. There’s still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win. That’s how war works, right?
Cowritten by two beloved and award-winning sci-fi writers, This Is How You Lose the Time War is an epic love story spanning time and space.
