If you're a fan, you're more than welcome to drop by the Otherland this Wednesday, February 20, between 6 - 7 pm, because our dear friends Caitlin Sweet and Peter Watts will be there for a very short meet&greet and signing! (derdahinteninderecke)
Speculative Fiction Book Club: Blindsight by Peter Watts
Every second Friday of the month at 7.30 pm we, the English speaking clientele of the Otherland Bookshop, meet to discuss a selected science fiction, fantasy or horror book and enjoy snacks and drinks in our favourite bookstore.
Superb writing, excellent worldbuilding, the guts to bring up the ugly, the uncomfortable, the creepy - Fantasy author Caitlin Sweet has it all. I'm pretty picky when it comes to fantasy, and even I am genuinely enchanted by her writing, surely she'll win all Otherlanders over in a walk!
At our last Gatherland meeting many eyes started to shine when the name "Peter Watts" was mentioned. Yes, there's a bona-fide hard SF-fanbase eagerly waiting to hear more about the disturbingly brilliant first-contact-novel Blindsight and its equally ingenious sidequel Echopraxia.
This will be a great evening and You, dear Otherlander, should definitely be there. So mark your calendar! (derdahinteninderecke)… (more)
