Hail Mighty Readers,
After the last World Book Night, Science Fiction and Fantasy Fans the world over complained at the lack of any titles featured within the genre.
This year, on the 23rd April, Iain M Banks, The Player of Games has made it to the list. So we urge you to join the campaign and let others know about it as well as sign up on the board to help promote your love of the genre.
So come one, come all, stand up and be counted and let your voices be heard.
And just to whet your appetite in case you haven't already read the title heres the book blurb:
The Culture - a human/machine symbiotic society - has thrown up many great Game Players, and one of the greatest is Gurgeh. Jernau Morat Gurgeh. The Player of Games. Master of every board, computer and strategy. Bored with success, Gurgeh travels to the Empire of Azad, cruel and incredibly wealthy, to try their fabulous game ...a game so complex, so like life itself, that the winner becomes emperor. Mocked, blackmailed, almost murdered, Gurgeh accepts the game, and with it the challenge of his life - and very possibly his death.
And on a final note just because we love reading, heres a direct link to the website.
