Calling all Trekkies, Asimov aficionados, Game of Thrones fangirls, and folks hitch-hiking through galaxies far, far away. Come talk about new and classic novels with your fellow geeks.

This month's selection is Elysium Fire by Alastair Reynolds.

Ten thousand city-state habitats orbit the planet Yellowstone, forming a near-perfect democratic human paradise. But even utopia needs a police force. For the citizens of the Glitter Band that organization is Panoply, and the prefects are its operatives. Prefect Tom Dreyfus has a new emergency on his hands. Across the habitats and their hundred million citizens, people are dying suddenly and randomly, victims of a bizarre and unprecedented malfunction of their neural implants. And these "melters" leave no clues behind as to the cause of their deaths... As panic rises in the populace, a charismatic figure is sowing insurrection, convincing a small but growing number of habitats to break away from the Glitter Band and form their own independent colonies.

The Sci-Fi & Fantasy Book Club meets at the Paseo Verde Library on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6pm. See a full list of this year's titles and previous titles here.
