Roadside Picnic

Book of the Month:
“Roadside Picnic” by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

Hello everyone – Good to see you all on Sunday to talk about “Babel-17 and Empire Star”. The group was pretty divided on loving this month’s selection and or…not so much. Either way, I think we can all agree that Delany is a gifted wordsmith and has an innate ability to build worlds the reader wants to explore. Plot holes and confusing dialog aside, I personally thought “Babel-17” was a good read. REALLY looking forward to checking out “Empire Star”.

This month we return to Earth to explore the world in the aftermath of an extraterrestrial event called the ‘Visitation’. “Roadside Picnic”, first published in 1971 by Soviet-Russian authors Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. There is also a film written by the brothers called “Stalker” that is loosely based on the novel and is a real trip, super curious to see what the whole story is about.
