December 6: The House of Rumour by Jake Arnott
Discussion Leader: Kamal Southall
Larry Zagorski, a science fiction writer turned U.S. fighter pilot, searches for connections between what seem like disparate events while conspiracy theories begin to suggest the possibility of a single force behind them in this novel that mixes real-life figures with fictional characters as it moves briskly from WWII spy intrigue (featuring Ian Fleming) and occultism to the West Coast pulp science-fiction set and the 1980s U.K. new wave music scene.
Kamal Southall is a Cincinnati area IT professional, he enjoys old books, late-night coffeehouses, and travel.
