Fantasy & Sci-Fi Book club #1 – Babel, R.F. Kuang

January 29, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Come down on Sunday 29th January for the first of our recurring monthly sci-fi & fantasy book clubs.

We’re reading Babel by R.F.Kuang…

A new dark academic fantasy by the New York Times bestselling author of The Poppy War.

Traduttore, traditore: An act of translation is always an act of betrayal.

Oxford, 1836. The city of dreaming spires. It is the centre of all knowledge and progress in the world. And at its centre is Babel, the Royal Institute of Translation. The tower from which all the power of the Empire flows.

Orphaned in Canton and brought to England by a mysterious guardian, Babel seemed like paradise to Robin Swift. Until it became a prison… but can a student stand against an empire?

An incendiary new novel from award-winning author R.F. Kuang about the power of language, the violence of colonialism, and the sacrifices of resistance.

To sign up, email us at, with ‘sci-fi fantasy book club’ in the subject line. There is no charge for joining the club, but we ask that you buy your copy of the book through the shop. We would give a 20% discount to book club members on the books for the club.
