Okay, so I've been a bit ad-hoc about things, but I'd like to open the floor to other people and get volunteers for the next, proper book club posts!

Since there weren't any disagreements to the plan proposed by [personal profile] liviapenn in the last post, the next couple posts to the community should go like this:

Next week (Sun Jul 26-Sat Aug 1): Trouble in Triplicate: "Help Wanted, Male" and "Instead of Evidence". - [personal profile] dorinda, thank you!
Following week (Sun Aug 2-Sat Aug 8): Catch-up post: And Be a Villain, The Second Confession
Following week (Sun Aug 9-Sat Aug 15): In the Best Families

And then I think we should regroup and decide if we want to do the stories in Curtains for Three as individual stories or in one post.

Who would like to post the discussion posts for each of these? They just have to go up sometime during the week! I offer myself as backup host if necessary.

I volunteer for the Trouble in Triplicate stories!

Is anyone else in the discussion going to Vividcon (aug 7-9) or Connexions (aug 15-17)? Unfortunately they'll be taking a chomp out of my available re-reading/commenting time, which is especially woeful given that this is Zeck at last.

Course, nothing says I can't comment later on posts than the official discussion period, so if I do get too swamped, that's my plan.

You know, I was looking at the last discussion-scheduling post back in 2013, and after Trouble in Triplicate, we had scheduled Three Doors to Death before going on to In The Best Families.

Did we miss Three Doors to Death this time around, or is it intended for after In the Best Families?

No, I think that's smart. I was just re-reading bits recently and it makes me roll around and kick my feet in the air. :D Discussion must happen!

I hope someday we do get to some of the other biggies--Black Mountain, for instance, one of my favorites and completely blowing up the corpus traditions... A Family Affair too, which is quite the rule-breaker, though a downer.
