    Thumbs up The Warseer Book Club

    Greetings Fellow Librarians,

    For those of you not familiar with the old PBC, it exists to allow members to pass intelligent judgement and criticism of books published by Games Workshop/The Black Library and non-GW/Black Library products. Comments on any books are welcome but most comments will centre around the book the WBC members have decided to study in depth over a period of a few weeks.

    How do you join the Warseer Book Club? By listing your favourite books (and their authors) from the following list of genres:

    1. Science Fiction (must not be a GW/BL publication)

    2. Fantasy (must not be a GW/BL publication)

    3. General Fiction

    4. Non Fiction

    5. Games Workshop/Black Library

    Please note that graphic novels are not acceptable as nominations for the above even if they were written by Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Frank Miller or J Michael Straczynski etc

    Before Portant's untimely demise we were discussing First and Only by Dan Abnett, published by The Black Library.

    The first session of the rejuvenated WBC will open today. We will conclude our discussion of First and Only and, as is custom, will award the book a score out of ten.

    Our next novel for discussion will be a non-BL novel (we alternate between discussing BL and non-BL novels). The novel selected for our next non-BL book by PBC members, on the previous forum, was Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. I'll announce the chapters for study and the opening date for discussion next week.

    Thats enough explanation for the moment, its time to begin discussing books again
