The simple topological measures X* on a q-space X are shown to be a superextension of X. Properties inherited from superextensions to topological measures are presented. The homology groups of various subsets of X* are calculated. For a q-space X, X* is shown to be a q-space. The homology of X* when X is the annulus is calculated. The homology of X* when X is a more general genus one space is investigated. In particular, X* for the torus is shown to have a retract homeomorphic to an infinite product of circles.
