    It's not much about the book (okay, it has nothing to do with the book :p ), but when I got home from the meeting on Saturday I had a letter in the mail telling me I've been published (for the second time) in Harper College's annual publication of the top works of writing in the college! Yay for me! :D :p

    I know this may be a little early to ask but...Do we know what the book will be for May yet? I know I've REALLY been out of the loop lately :( , but I should be able to make the meeting for May :).

    At the meeting Saturday, we went ahead and selected books for the rest of the year. Basicly, the idea was to read new books--hardcover or paperback--as quickly as possible after their release.

    Here is the list:

    May - Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter
    June - Cloak Of Deception
    July - The Cestus Deception
    August - MedStar I: Battle Surgeons
    September - The SW Trilogy (to celebrate the DVD release, such as it is ;))
    October - MedStar II: Healer
    November - Jedi Trial
    December - Dark Rendezvous

    Originally the plan was to have Cestus Deception in June--as it's due to be released early that month--then Medstar I, then Cloak. However, one little detail slipped our minds until we got to Bennigan's... namely, that due to the June meeting for Black Sun moving to Saturday instead of Sunday (because of the Toy Fair that month) and the Hunger Walk on the 19th, Errant Venture in June is scheduled for the second Saturday, 6/12. That would not give people enough time to read the book before the meeting, so we all decided to shift the plan a bit.

    Any questions?

    Bobafemme - No, of course not.

    May is Schaumburg, so June should be Chicago.

    ???

    Dan is incorrect, but he means well. :) June is in the city, July is in Schaumburg.

    that's even better....
    I would rather the downtown location....I can drive part of the way in and take the train the rest of the way...

    Whoops. Sorry. I am a big knucklehead. For some reason I think I thought that it was May already . . . the lights are on but no one is home.

    Mea Culpa

    I case everyone thought that I had been scared away after meeting you all in March. Think again. I still exist but life has been throwing me curve balls and I have had little time to read. I won't be making the meeting on Sat but I hope to make my triumphant return in June at the DT meeting.

    Sorry Guys!

    I'm not going to be able to make it. I've had a ton of work this week, and I'll be busy all weekend with more work and my wife's b-day. I haven't even had time to read the book, let alone write discussion questions. There's a chance that I'll be able to come to the collectors club, but that isn't looking terribly likely either.

    Hope you guys have fun!

    Okay, then... Hawk-Bat, the responsibility for creating a list of discussion question defaults to you. (hey, you've commented about attaining a position of power in Chicago Force, well, ya gotta earn that title, boy!)

    What do you take us for... Ewoks???

    Chris, chill out. You're not anyone in Chicago Force until you've been voted out at least once. Heck, Bosh gets ousted every other month or so! ;)

    Both June & July are listed several posts above.

    June is Cloak of Deception
    July is The Cestus Deception.

    Two months of deception for you.
