A good turnout at our most recent meeting, with most of us liking our book, Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. For our next book, we’ve chosen a tale of a man and a woman who work together to save a vanishing alien race, in The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord.

The Long Synopsis reads:
... The Best of All Possible Worlds is a stunning
science fiction epic that is also a beautifully wrought, deeply moving love story.
A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked
act of aggression, and the survivors have no choice but to reach out to the indigenous
humanoids of their adopted world, to whom they are distantly related. They wish to
preserve their cherished way of life but come to discover that in order to preserve
their culture, they may have to change it forever. Now a man and a woman from these
two clashing societies must work together to save this vanishing race--and end up
uncovering ancient mysteries with far-reaching ramifications. As their mission hangs
in the balance, this unlikely team--one cool and cerebral, the other fiery and impulsive--just
may find in each other their own destinies . . . and a force that transcends all.
Come join us next month to talk about this book, and anything else SF related.
