Crossed Genres has just published their new anthology, Subversion: Science Fiction & Fantasy tales of challenging the norm. They have described it as “an anthology of stories about striking back at the status quo ? whatever that might be. The Authority can be real or perceived; the act of subversion subtle or overt; and the consequences minute yet significant, or immense and world-shaking.”

We will enjoy three writers from this book reading their works as hosted by the editor, Bart R. Leib. Books will be available at the event.
