Join the Octavia Books Science Fiction Book Club for a discussion of Moira Crone's new novel, THE NOT YET, an adventure set in New Orleans of the future.  The author herself will be at the meeting as a special guest and will make a presentation and participate in the program.

It's 2121; the Heirs control society's resources from their lavish walled city-states. Through life extension, they live hundreds of years. Outside, the poor barely survive. Malcolm de Lazarus, twenty, is a "Not Yet," one counting on joining the elite. But when his fortune mysteriously disappears, he must sail to the chaotic New Orleans Islands for answers. On the way, he encounters the darkest side of Heirs' privilege, which threatens everything he knows and loves.

"A vivid, suspenseful, and (literally) layered imagining of what's to become of New Orleans and humanity (a new kind of love?) in the Twenty-Second Century." —ROY BLOUNT JR. 

The Science Fiction Book Club meets on the 2nd Saturday each month and welcomes all interested readers. Please feel welcome to join us!

Join the Octavia Book Club for a discussion of DEVIL AMONGST THE LAWYERS by Sharyn McCrumb.

“Ms. McCrumb writes with quiet fire and maybe a little mountain magic. . . . She plucks the mysteries from people’s lives and works these dark narrative threads into Appalachian legends older than the hills. Like every true storyteller, she has the Sight.”—The New York Times Book Review

The Octavia Books Book Club meets at 10:30AM on the 3rd Saturday morning of each month and is open to book lovers. Please feel welcome to join us!

Join the Octavia Books Science Fiction Book Club for a discussion of Barbara Comyns’ THE VET'S DAUGHTER.

Harrowing and haunting, like an unexpected cross between Flannery O'Connor and Stephen King, The Vet's Daughter is a story of outraged innocence that culminates in a scene of appalling triumph.
