#Bookreview The City by Clifford Simak

City is one of those Science Fiction books that has a brilliant idea, but the delivery is just muffled a bit to make it a good read but not great. I see it very much in the same mold as Asimov’s Foundation. There is a lot that can be discussed here, but all of them would involve spoilers. It is very complex and will be sure to take turns you didn’t expect. I would call it a must read for all science fiction fans, even though I do not think it is the best book by Simak. If you have read this, I would love to discuss some of the philosophical ideas and dilemmas presented. Please message me.

  1. Robert,
    My name is Joe Schwartz and I’m the programming coordinator for the St. Louis Public Library.

    On October 27 from 1-5 I’ll be hosting the Author Shout Out! at the Schlafly Library. It’s a fun time with at least a dozen other locally published authors in every genre. I’d love for you to consider attending this year. It is open to the public from 2-5pm and is a great way to meet not only cross-sections of the reading public you might not otherwise reach, but it is a refreshing opportunity to network with fellow writers who are working hard to have their work discovered. Susan McBride will be the keynote and every author attending will get a brief but fulfilling moment to speak from the podium.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon,

    Joe
