In the seventeenth century, immortal cyborgs try to rescue the New World from Europeans. This week we'll be discussing the book Sky Coyote, by Kage Baker, in io9's book club meeting. Going on right now in comments!


I think the thing that struck me about this book, like many of Baker's books, is her penchant for mixing savvy historical and political details with flat-out Monty Python goofiness. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. What did you guys think of it?

We'll be talking about the book in comments for the next few days, so feel free to join in any time before Friday.


The io9 book club meets every month to talk about a book we've read together - often the author comes to speak to us as well, but sadly Baker passed away a few months ago. If you liked this novel, though, you're in luck: Baker wrote several more books in the Company Series so you have a lot more ahead of you to enjoy!

If you'd like to get started on next month's book, we'll be reading David Louis Edelman's Infoquake. We'll be meeting April 27.
