With November coming ’round tomorrow, I realize my chances of re-starting the post-apocalyptic reading group for November 1 are probably pretty faint . Again, this is pretty much a reflection of where my brain is these days. I *meant* to get us started for ummm…tomorrow. But while I realize my readers are a brilliant and uniquely talented bunch, probably obtaining and reading the novel by tomorrow is a little unfair. I would, of course, never suggest that your genius blogiste couldn’t do it.
So, here is my official announcement – we’re getting started again as of December 1, and I can’t resist making the first read James Howard Kunstler’s _The Witch of Hebron_ which I’ve already commented a bit on over at ye olde blogge.
Following up on the peak oil theme for January 1, we’re going to read Kurt Cobb’s new e-book _Prelude_ which is actually not a post-apocalyptic novel, but a pre-apocalyptic novel – a peak oil thriller. But since foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds and Emerson said so, I feel completely free to inconsistently say that Cobb’s novel counts.
After that, we’ll do a mix of my selections from your long list of excellent suggestions and probably some democratic voter choice. I’m looking forward to my once-a-month doom fix, aren’t you?
