Tonight we'll be celebrating the book launch of Tachyon Publications newest anthology! It's a party, with Super Stories Of Heroes & Villains, edited by Claude Lalumière. Each author will be reading a selection from their new work, followed by Q&A with the authors, the editor, and the audience, moderated by author Terry Bisson.
