The io9 Book Club is in session! Let's talk about Ian McDonald's The Dervish House

Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In August we read Ian McDonald's novel The Dervish House. 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're hoping Ian McDonald will drop by and speak to us about the novel early next week. I'll post a call for questions for him — keep an eye out for it!

So, what did you think of the book?

Want to get a headstart on next month's book? We'll be meeting Sept. 27 to discuss Lois McMaster Bujold's Cryoburn.
