A SOLDER'S DUTY by Jean Johnson (Ace Books)
AFTER THE APOCALYPSE by Maureen F. McHugh (Small BeerPress)
DEADLINE by Mira Grant (Orbit)
THE COMPANY MAN by Robert Jackson Bennett (Orbit)
THE OTHER by Matthew Hughes (Underland Press)
THE POSTMORTAL by Drew Magary (Penguin Books)

The social will begin around 5:00 P.M. and continue until around 10pm.

As usual, this is a potluck; William will be roasting a turkey for one of the main dishes.  Side dishes that complement and/or add are always welcomed.

Caution:  There is a household goddess in residence, so if you’re allergic to, or afraid of cats be forwarned.  Also, the house is marginally ADA friendly: there are three steps up when entering the house and three steps down into the family room for the downstairs bathroom.
