  2. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) on June 30th, 2018 [00:30 A.M. (GMT), July 1st], for a discussion of "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" by Ursual K. LeGuin. Le Guin (October 21, 1929 -- January 22, 2018) was a prolific writer of novels and short stories, most of them in the Speculative Fiction genre'. She received many awards for literature, most (but not all of them) in the for her science fiction and fantasy works. If you are interested in more about this iconic writer of imaginative fiction you should check the wikipedia article on her ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursula_K._Le_Guin ). "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" is a study in parable involving humanity and ethical behavior. It is very well written and, in my opinion, a very powerful work. I don't know whether you will enjoy it, but I do believe you will find it difficult to put down and will appreciate its message. I know it will make for an excellent discussion. The story is available in PDF format at: http://www.mccc.edu/pdf/eng102/Week 9/Text_LeGuin Ursula_Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas.pdf Webchat: http://koach.com/cha...=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all for the chat.

The story is one of the "free reads" offered Baen Books in its online catalog.

    I assure you I was not being cute or making fun. I know the heartbreak of losing a beloved pet, something you never get over.

    Well, sometimes in grief, it's easier to talk about them by remembering little jokes and things that happened when they were alive.

    Today, I had to euthanize the second cat in a week. Casper was 17.5 years old. He had kidney disease and had, for the most part, stopped eating about a week ago, and by this morning, he could not stand any longer or even keep water down. He was my grandson's cat (the grandson that lives with me).

  24. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) June 16th, 2018 -- 00:30 A.M. (GMT) June 17th -- for a discussion of "A Ghost Story" by Mark Twain This little gem from Mark Twain's pen is a bit of a tongue in cheek satire of "horror" tales as well as a sharp stick in the eye to gullibility and to P.T. Barnum's "believe it or not" cynicism. It starts off as though it is a very well crafted ghost story then rapidly turns into a parody. I think you will enjoy it. The story capitalizes on the publicity surrounding the alleged discovery of a fossilized giant in Cardiff, England and subsequent exposure of the fossil as a fraud. Like most of Train's writings it displays his keen wit and utter disdain for frauds. I think you will love the story. The story is available on line at: https://americanliterature.com/author/mark-twain/short-story/a-ghost-story The #Readers_Corner is available at Koach.com Webchat: http://koach.com/chatlogin.php?chan=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all at our chat.
