The co-reading and talk with Laurence A. Rickels and James Reich last night at City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco was well-received and attended. Reich read a new science fiction story and Rickels read from Germany: A Science Fiction. Then there was an hour-long discussion and Q&A. Below are some stills from the event.
