The Sword and Laser

I’ve joined the Sword and Laser.

The Sword and Laser is a science fiction and fantasy themed book club, created by Tom Merritt and Veronica Belmont,  that my wife and I joined back around the beginning of October.  The focus of the book club is to create a stronger community of sci-fi/fantasy buffs who read and enjoy both genres.

The first book the group selected for the month of October was Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass, the 1st in His Dark Materials trilogy). I should add that The Golden Compass film adaptation is scheduled to be released on  December 7th.

The second, and current book we are reading for the month of December, is Orson Scott Card’s classic sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game.

If you happen to be a fan of these genres and enjoy discussing literature with other geeks, feel free to join us. Voting by the community for the January 2008 book selection will likely begin in the next two to three weeks.
