Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

SF Masterworks Reading Challenge 2016-17

SF Masterworks Reading Challenge 2016-17

I was inspired by an imprint called SF Masterworks to create a book club to read these legendary sci-fi classics together and critique them. This imprint will be our reading list. Our inaugural year was a smashing success! But I've learned a few things so this year I'm offering two different ways to approach the challenge:

1. Read 12 books of your choice from the SF Masterworks list.
2. Read along with the Science Fiction Masterworks Reading Club, which will be reading the entire list in order of publication. This year we will be reading:

Our goals are:
1. To promote the reading of science fiction.
2. To share and discuss the classics of the genre as fans and literary critics.
3. To enjoy good reading in a subject that interests us as a social activity that we can share.

Care to join us?

You can find us on Facebook and on Goodreads.

*Note: Thanks to Illegible Scribble for changing the entry for The Book of Skulls to include it as a sci-fi/horror book also. I have changed the challenge back to only permit sci-fi as a result.
