This year, Octocon is running a book club! Pretty much like any other book club, people who want to participate read a particular work, and then at the con we get together to talk about what we liked and disliked about it. This event will be managed and moderated by Fionna O’Sullivan in her role as Person Who Has Read Quite A Lot.
Thanks to everyone who voted in our book club survey. We received 45 votes for our 6 options. The winner was Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler with 13 votes. We hope many of you will read this book and come to the book club to discuss it at the convention.
If you’d like to get a copy of the book, either electronic or paper, you can click the link below.
All of the books on the short list are well worth reading, and we can heartily recommend any of them.
