Malaysia's first science fiction and fantasy club?
Today I went to the "Why-Isn't-There-an-SFF-Bookclub" bookclub meeting. That's right, Malaysia now has an SFF bookclub, which - who knows - might one day expand into an actual society and ... be running an SFF convention? Hey, let's set our sights high, ok? In the meantime it's just a way of getting together to discuss a common interest in SFF books and comics once a month.
So if you are a genre lover, live around KL and want to join, why not? It's free!
I went along, didn't know anyone, and now have three new friends. Yes, there were only 4 of us altogether, (although there are over 20 members on facebook,) but it was a great discussion of "Air" by Geoff Ryman, lots of serious chat, lots of laughs, and a good time had by all. Many many thanks to Maxine and Alina and Zen Cho for starting this.
