A book of the month for June?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I wanted to know if there would be a book for June. I haven't been a in book club for a long time, so I am looking forward to it. 

To start things rolling, I would suggest one of the novels of Gene Wolfe, of whom I am a big fan.  Say one of the small ones, like There are Doors, or Home Fires.

That's just to get the ball rolling. I would be fine with anything we chose.

I wish we could find something available on Kindle Unlimited or an otherwise low cost download, though I am afraid I don't have any particular suggestions. I'm really glad I bought Good Omens though; that was exceptional.

That's a good point. I'll try to see if there are any Wolfe works that apply. 

Does anyone else have some suggestions to another author to read?

As far as I can tell, there are no Gene Wolfe tiles available for free. Most of them seem to range from 3.99 to 9.99 I am not a member, so I might be wrong. Feel free to check if I am correct.

I would be happy to look up any suggestions in the Kindle Unlimited Catalog to see if they are free.

If I can make a suggestion. Wielders of Arantha: Pawns is the first book of a scifi/fantasy trilogy that I think is an awesome tale. It is free with Kindle Unlimited, or only $2.99 for the eBook on Amazon. Patrick Hodges is not a famous author, but his work is extremely good.  Just a suggestion.

That sounds like a good choice to me.

Edit: I went and checked out some of the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. There is nearly universal acclaim for this work; many, many five-star reviews. I began to think it was a scam, but it seems absolutely legit, with lots of praise from other writers (always a good sign).

Both of those options sound good. I'm not familiar with Patrick Hodges but am game to try (did the group decide on  Wielders of Arantha: Pawns?).

 

I've also read Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun series and would be interested to try others. (fun fact: Wolfe helped design the machine that made Pringles Potato Chips)
