As veteran readers know, I love doing book clubs on the blog. So let’s get one started for the summer. Normally I take requests and we vote, but I actually wanted to propose a book myself this time. I’d love to revisit Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars since it will, somewhat unbelievably, be 20 years old this summer, and explores everything from the relationship between Islam and the West to futurist architecture. Let me know over the weekend if you’re interested, and if we’ve got enough people, we’ll kick off next week and I’ll post the first set of chapters we’ll tackle on Monday.
