This post has been redacted. There shall be no bookclub on 12th December. Due to members having lives. If you really want one, please comment suggesting an alternative date. Otherwise we’ll meetup 16th January. If you’d like to have another book to read (it will be a two-month gap), please visit the goodreads group page, and we’ll pick one together. Sorry about the confusion.

Yes! Friday, 12th December, at 19:30, we’ll meet for the last time this year. We’ll reminisce about our favourite books of the year gone by, and discuss this months book; chosen by random number generator – Gateway by Frederik Pohl.
Gateway opened on all the wealth of the Universe…and on reaches of unimaginable horror. When prospector Robinette Broadhead went out to Gateway on the Heechee spacecraft, he decided he would know which was the right mission to make him his fortune. Three missions later, now famous and permanently rich, Rob Broadhead has to face what happened to him and what he is…in a journey into himself as perilous and even more horrifying than the nightmare trip through the interstellar void that he drove himself to take!

+1 to meeting up on January 9th, and picking a short book afterwards 🙂
Note: We’ll actually be meeting on the 16th as is noted in the calendar. If the extra time makes you feel bored ’cause you finished the book already, we talked about reading the (short) “The Machine Stops” by E.M. Forster ( https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4711854.The_Machine_Stops ) and discussing it at this book club too. See y’all then!
