Science Fiction Book Club

Join host and Malaprop's Bookseller Allison to dive into the wreck of the wily and wonderful world of sci-fi, weird fiction, speculative fiction, literary horror, and disturbing fiction with a healthy mix of underappreciated classic and contemporary books. Meets the last Monday of every month at 7pm at Malaprop’s. Please scroll to the current month and year to see what the club is reading now.
