    Alexei Panshin Group Read @ Science Fiction in Oct.

    This October, we invite you join us at Science Fiction as we read and discuss Alexei Panshin's Nebula-winning novel, RITE OF PASSAGE.

    While it isn't the best-known Nebula-winning novel, it has an added significance in the genre above its own merits, as a sort of rejoinder to certain aspects of SF legend Robert A Heinlein's own juvenile fiction. As it is, though, RITE OF PASSAGE is a memorable coming-of-age novel that can be read and debated on its own merits as well - some readers, for instance, are less than comfortable with certain political decisions taken in the latter section of the novel, while others praise the book's characterisation, especially in the form the narrator and protagonist, young Mia Havero. Judge for yourself, and let us know what you think!

    Please do join the discussion at any time during the month in our Alexei Panshin thread!
