Our new community book club.
I can’t wait to introduce Stephen to this whole X-Men business...but seriously maybe one of the Culture books or the first Expanse novel might be a good fit for this crowd. Comics wise...hmmm...I’d love to see what y’all thought of Ewing’s Immortal Hulk.
Anything by N.K. Jemisin
Oh this is a GREAT idea and I'm totally in. Jon's already my go-to when I need a really weird, big-brain book recommendation and I can already think of a couple of novels I hope we read as a group. I'm in!
A lot of people are suggesting books they’ve already read and enjoyed. I’d suggest maybe books you’ve always wanted to read? For me, that would be something like Book of the New Sun or some Le Carre. There’s a book my to be read pile called Drunk on All Your Strange New Words which sounds very up the alley of 3W3M. “A locked room mystery in a near future world of politics and alien diplomacy.”
Novel: Scalzi’s Redshirts would be a great choice, I think! Also Ulysses, if we wanted to do something over a longer arc…
Graphic Novel: maybe Moonshadow?
Mistborn. East of West.
Ok. He's been making tech headlines a lot lately, but Neal Stephenson is one hell of a novelist, and Seveneves is one of my favorites.
Even if it isn't chosen for discussion, anyone who reads this comment should go check it out.
Just read the first sentence.
Awesome, love this idea! And doing both prose and a graphic novel. Just read The Night Eaters by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda and currently reading Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands by Kate Beaton.
I started a virtual graphic novel club for the public library I work for in March of 2021 and is still going strong.
I think The Vanished Birds by Simon Jimenez would be a great book for this group. It's got some great explorations of the idea of relativistic travel and it's effect on trade and culture as groups and individuals move out of sync. And it's a self contained story so no need to read a whole series to be on the same foot for discussion .
With apologies for going off topic, I'm commenting here as it's the most recent post...
I'm trying and failing to get a response to a customer service query on 3W/3M. I've tried email, to email@example.com, and direct messaging on Twitter, without a response. Is there another method I should be using? Thanks in advance!
I’ll take one from the weird-big-brain book pile @Tini mentioned
We Are Legion (We are Bob)!
I'd suggest Moore and/or Gaiman's Miracleman, and Shade the Changing Girl
Awesome idea. Looking forward to the community and conversation.
