Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and pop music auteur Rufus Wainwright is one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed artists of his generation. Born into a musical family (his father is legendary folk singer Loudon Wainwright III and his mother was the equally-influential Canadian singer Kate McGarrigle) he exploded onto the scene in the late-nineties with both his debut self-titled album and its follow-up, Poses.
Famous for his distinctive, deeply emotional voice and mastery of the piano, Wainwright has built a vast following. His prolific output includes a much-celebrated series of albums (Want I & II, 2003-2004), an opera (Prima Donna, 2009), and seven studio and two live recordings.
