A welcoming place where readers share their love of speculative fiction through a lively conversation about a pre-read title. For April we are reading: "The Echo Wife" by Sarah Gailey.

This is a group for speculative fiction fans (science fiction/fantasy) who would like to read and discuss genre literature. Each month we'll have a discussion about a book, either a new release or an older book (but ideally something that most people haven't read yet), that we've read before meeting.

"The Echo Wife" by Sarah Gailey.

"Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient. She’s everything Evelyn swore she’d never be.

And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband.

Now, the cheating bastard is dead, and both Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up.

Good thing Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty."
