Just a quick reminder that next week is the io9 Book Club meeting, where we'll be talking about Catherynne N. Valente's novel Palimpsest. What is this crazy io9 Book Club? Let me tell you about it.

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session (it starts Tuesday the 2nd), and everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days. Later that week, we hope that Valente will join us, so you can ask her burning questions you have about the book (and about her new novel, which just came out!).
