This September, Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club will discuss A Conspiracy of Truths by Alexandra Rowland!
If you love meta-fiction about stories—their power, how they work, stories within stories within stories—this is for you. It’s incisive, inclusive, fun, and features a crotchety old bard who maybe accidentally starts a civil war from a prison cell, as one does.
And if you enjoy this one, her next book in the same world, A Choir of Lies, will be newly out in time for book club!
Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Club reads books throughout subgenres of speculative fiction. So far they’ve read Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee, Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett, The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal, Zero Sum Game by S.L. Huang, Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone, Witchmark by C.L. Polk, The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty, Stories of Your Lives and Others by Ted Chiang, Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky, The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie, Empress of Forever by Max Gladstone, and Unraveling by Karen Lord.
