Thanks to everyone who has signed up for my 2012 Sci-Fi challenge. As promised there will be a group read each month for those that want to join in. The first book is one I’ve been wanting to read for some time, the 2011 Arthur C. Clarke Award winner, Zoo City by Lauren Beukes.
The book is a bit cross-genre, some say it’s fantasy but as it’s won a major science fiction prize I think it counts for my challenge! If you’d like the gorgeous Joey HiFi cover, you’ll need to get the UK Angry Robot edition but it should be widely available in both paperback and ebook formats.
If anyone has any good ideas for where/how to discuss the book at the end of January, let me know. I’ll be reading the book early so if you have a burning desire to discuss it with anyone, you can count on me!
This is entirely voluntary so feel free to read your own choice of sci-fi book if you’d rather. A link-up will be posted on 1st January for you to add your reviews/thoughts and earn entries into the giveaway.
