Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In October, we read Ekaterina Sedia's novel Heart of Iron. Jump into comments to get started talking 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. That would be the post you're reading right now. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.


We've confirmed that Sedia will drop by and speak to us about the novel on Friday. I'll post a call for questions for her on Thursday morning — keep an eye out for it!

So, what did you think of the book?

Want to get a head start on our next book? We're taking December off, so let's fill those two months with something long. When we return on January 24, we're meeting to discuss Neal Stephenson's novel Reamde. (Here's io9's review of the book.)
