  7. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) on February 23, 2019 [01:30 A.M. (GMT), February 24th], for a discussion of "The Guests" by H. H. Munro. Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 14 November 1916), perhaps better known under his pen name: Saki was a British writer. His father was an inspector general for the Imperial Police of the British Raj; his mother a daughter of a British admiral. His mother died when he was two years old and Munro and his siblings were sent to live under the strict rules of his maiden aunts in England. He completed his education and joined the British colonial police service, serving as had his father, as a police official in Burma. Due to several debilitating bouts of fever, he was medically discharged and sent back to England where he turned attention to literary pursuits. On the outbreak of the First World War, Munro, at the age of 43 enlisted in the British army. He was killed in combat and is buried in an unmarked grave in the war zone. This story, set on the estate of a British expatriate family in the Indian Raj, is most probably based on his memories of his familiarity with life there. It's a humorous tale, as related by the wife of a expatriate to a fellow English woman. I think you will find the story amusing. The story is available from ReadPrint.com at: http://www.readprint.com/work-4900/The-Guests-H-H-Munro/contents As usual we will meet in the #readers_corner channel: 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.

  10. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) on Fwbruary 15, 2019 [01:30 A.M. (GMT), February 16], for a discussion of "The Hated" by Frederick Pohl. A quick check of the archives surprised me in that we have not, at least since we have been saving story announcements in the archives, discussed a story by Frederick Pohl. Pohl is one of the greats of Science Fiction, having won all of the major awards for SF authors. He was an active editor and writer from 1937 until shortly before his death, at 93 years of age, in 2012. Like most of the "greats" on the genre' he focused on the societal and psychological effects of future scientific developments rather than the mechanics of those developments. I remember the early days of the space race where there were serious concerns about the mental health of Americal astronauts who might be forced to spend long periods in space capsules or orbiting space stations either in solitude or close contact with other crew members. Those early astronauts were subjected to all sorts of personality and psychiatric tests to assure that they could mentally cope with those stresses. This story explores the mental stresses suffered by such persons during and after lengthy space voyages and one possible governmental decision on how to treat them. The story could have dealt with the crews of nuclear submarines or teams of scientists wintering over at the South Pole...but Pohl chose space travellers involved in a mission to Mars. Whether you are a fan of science fiction or not, I believe you will understand, and appreciate, the tale. The story is available from eastoftheweb.com (although it is not listed on the site index) at: http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Hate914.shtml#1 As usual we will meet in the #readers_corner channel: 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.
