Science Fiction and Fantasy Discussion: The Core of the Sun

The Core of the Sun book coverThis month's book discussion will be about The Core of the Sun by Johanna Sinisalo. 

Set in an alternative historical present, in a "eusistocracy"—an extreme welfare state—that holds public health and social stability above all else, this example of "Finnish weird" speculative fiction follows a young woman whose growing addiction to illegal chili peppers leads her on an adventure into a world where love, sex, and free will are all controlled by the state.

Anyone interested in Science Fiction or Fantasy is welcome. Although we focus on this month’s selection, we will discuss any topics related to Science Fiction or Fantasy, books or movies. Copies of the discussion book are available in the library to check out.
