Tachyon Publications Party

September 13th, 2010 · No Comments

Join us at Borderlands Books on September 19th as we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Tachyon Publications.

SUNDAY – SEPTEMBER 19 – 2:00PM – 6:00PM


15 years of publishing smart, intelligent, science fiction and fantasy. That’s our fifteenth anniversary in publishing. Whoa. 15. We’re so thrilled, we want you to come and have some fun with us to celebrate this milestone with:

  • A special gift for each attendee – our anniversary chapbook!
  • Readings and witty repartee by guests of honor!
  • Awesome snacks provided by SF in SF – San Francisco’s SFFH author and film series, underwritten by Tachyon Publications, supporting Variety Children’s Charity of Northern California for more than five years
  • AND our legendary birthday cake, being made by author Madeleine Robins! Rumour has it that chocolate cake and rum go well together…

Our special author guests for the event are:

  • John Kessel
  • James Patrick Kelly

(co-editors of The Secret History of Science Fiction; Rewired, The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology; Feeling Very Strange, The Slipstream Anthology; James Patrick Kelly is also the author of the Nebula Award-winning novella, Burn)

Plus many local authors, such as Peter S. Beagle, Richard A. Lupoff, and Michael Blumlein, in attendance — and you! YOU help make this party rock, so we hope to see you there.


The Norton Awards, a San Francisco Bay area-specific juried award, are given each year for “extraordinary invention and creativity unhindered by the constraints of paltry reason.” The award commemorates the memory of Joshua Norton I, Emperor of the United States of America and Protector of Mexico. One is given to a single work of SF/F/H or to an author in these genres; the second to any creation, creator, or service relating to those genres. Presented only at the Tachyon Anniversary party – come and applaud the winners!
