Monday, December 18th we will be discussing Lost Gods by Brom.

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.

A young man descends into Purgatory to save his wife and unborn child in this gorgeous, illustrated tale of wonder and terror from the mind of master storyteller and acclaimed artist Brom.

Fresh out of jail and eager to start a new life, Chet Moran and his pregnant wife, Trish, leave town to begin again. But an ancient evil is looming, and what seems like a safe haven may not be all it appears . . .

Snared and murdered by a vile, arcane horror, Chet quickly learns that pain and death are not unique to the living. Now the lives and very souls of his wife and unborn child are at stake.To save them, he must journey into the bowels of purgatory in search of a sacred key promised to restore the natural order of life and death. Alone, confused, and damned, Chet steels himself against the unfathomable terrors awaiting him as he descends into death’s stygian blackness.

With Lost Gods, Brom’s gritty and visceral writing takes us on a haunting, harrowing journey into the depths of the underworld. Thrust into a realm of madness and chaos, where ancient gods and demons battle over the dead, and where cabals of souls conspire to overthrow their masters, Chet plays a dangerous game, risking eternal damnation to save his family.

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.

England 1976. Mrs. Creasy is missing. The neighbors blame her disappearance on the heat wave, but ten-year-olds Grace and Tilly aren’t convinced. Inspired by the local vicar, they take matters into their own hands and go looking for God–believing that if they find Him they might also find Mrs. Creasy. Grace and Tilly go door to door in search of clues. As they try to make sense of what they’ve seen and heard, a complicated history of deception begins to emerge.

Monday, November 20th we will be discussing Guards! Guards! by Terry Prachett.

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.

Welcome to Guards! Guards!, the eighth book in Terry Pratchett’s legendary Discworld series. Long believed extinct, a superb specimen of draco nobilis (“noble dragon” for those who don’t understand italics) has appeared in Discworld’s greatest city. Not only does this unwelcome visitor have a nasty habit of charbroiling everything in its path, in rather short order it is crowned King (it is a noble dragon, after all…). How did it get there? How is the Unique and Supreme Lodge of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night involved? Can the Ankh-Morpork City Watch restore order – and the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork to power?  Magic, mayhem, and a marauding dragon…who could ask for anything more?

We hope you can join us!  We require no commitment – come for one meeting or come for them all.
