Welcome to Genesis Sci-fi Club
The Basingstoke science fiction club
This web site is in the process of being revamped completely. Yes, we know it looks dated. This will be remedied soon-ish (heavy on the -ish). Until then, you can consider what you see here as a sort of archive. Go ahead and click the links on the side bar, but keep in mind that much of the non-fictional information is woefully out of date. As the site gets updated, a subset of that information will be copied over.
The next meetings are listed below. For now, they're all planned to be held online using the Zoom platform. Connection information will be posted here, and on social media (hopefully) no later than an hour before the meeting starts.
The next scheduled meetings are as follows:
Book Club Meeting: Saturday, 27th February, 2021 at 10:00 GMT

This month is going to include the Annual General Meeting (AGM). It's the one piece of business we actually conduct as part of the club, and we only do it for an hour or so once per year. We discuss our financials, such as they are; we elect new (or, usually, the same) officers; and we discuss anything club-related that belongs at an AGM.
In the meantime, we all hope everybody is doing as well as they can be, and that they're all coping with whatever forms of isolation they may be forced to endure. When things have calmed down again, and various venues have re-opened, regular in-person meetings will resume. Until then, everybody stay safe!
A long-time member of the club, David Offen-James, is trying to raise money for the Macmillan Cancer Support by running in the 2021 London Marathon. This is in response to our long-time friend Jeremy Ogden dying of cancer, and in support for his wife Susan's battle with cancer. (He also really enjoys running.)
You can read more about it on David's Giving Page. You can also make a donation there.
Please be generous and give.
