Heading into 2024, we’ll be continuing our Fantasy and Science Fiction reading group, exploring worlds both fantastical and horrific, monstrous and utopian. Whether your interests lie in exploring the ruins of a lost civilization, challenging fiends to save the world from ruin or delicately navigating the politics of a corporate interstellar McEmpire™ (Ask about our franchising options and get a free McNuke™!), I do hope you’ll join us.

For the sixth reading group of 2024, we'll returning the Earth, as a freak incident causes the duplication of a plane flight, creating perfect copies of those aboard. As great minds struggle to rationalize how this could be possible, those aboard the flight(s) must answer their own questions about their newfound existence, particularly in respect to their relationship to their twins...

No one knows how it happened. But it'll change their lives forever . . .

During a terrifying storm, Air France flight 006 - inexplicably - duplicates. For every passenger, there are now two: a double with the same mind, body and memories.

Only one thing sets them apart - while one plane lands in March, the other doesn't arrive until June. Nothing can explain this unprecedented event. But for each duplicated passenger, an impossible moment of reckoning awaits.

If there are two of you, and just one life . . . who gets to live it?
