In case you missed it earlier, @naga is now administering a donation account for the : en.liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFB

The goal is that those of us who can afford the books and *also* a little extra give when we can so people in a pinch can use club funds to buy the books if their library doesn't have them.

River of Teef acquired. Now to hold off on reading it until July.

If you're a member and (genuinely, this is not a thing we want anyone doing if you're *at all* doubtful you have funds to spare) have a few bucks to spare, donate to the book club fund! It's for buying books for members who're hard up.

If you want to read "River of Teef" (yes, I'm serious, I can't help but type it that way) but can't afford it, DM me. We don't have enough in the Liberapay account yet to cover a full book (you should donate, though!: en.liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFB)

I'm officially going to think of this month's selection as "River of Teef," because I'm around cat social media too much. /fear the teeeeeeeef

Also I guess it involves deadly horror hippos?

The #sffbookclub July selection is *The River of Teeth*, a novella/short novel by Sarah Gailey. sarahgailey.com/

If you want to read this with us and cannot find an affordable way to access it, DM me. We have a little bit of crowdfunding accrued.

If you have been thinking of contributing to the fundraising, every bit helps. The #LiberaPay is at en.liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFB

I'm going to be casually starting up the hashtag soon. I plan to watch Kedi, the documentary on cats in Istanbul, next weekend. /first cat story

I figure it can be for sharing any comics/manga/TV/anime/books/whatever about cats and thoughts thereon.

Which kind of clasps do y'all enamel pin fanatics find work best? I really like a few of mine and I want them to not fall off...

Y'all, how much would you charge for reading through another language speaker's translation of 50 pages of their own work into English and giving them notes/thoughts on the English?

Taking into account that this is a piece I will probably enjoy reading by an author who's demographically/genre-wise one I'd support anyway.

I'm glad humans don't express affection by spontaneously falling over.

I came across this link elsewhere: shirky.com/writings/group_enem

It's about group dynamics, especially on the internet, and what you need to be able to overcome the tendencies of groups to self-destruct.

it's from 2003, so there's some outdated references, but it's wild how accurate it still is.

Can anyone recommend a good site for ordering stickers (for the sake of sending to Mastodon friends)?

My dad was saying that ham radio operators used to (possibly still do?) exchange tokens of some sort when they met up in person.

I want to do that for meeting internet people :|
