After an unforgettable night at the Edinburgh Book Festival, Literary Death Match returns to Auld Reekie to trump our August magic by presenting the penultimate LDM of 2014, with a must-see battle at The Voodoo Rooms that will have you on the edge of your seat. Go, go, go!
The night will feature four writers reading their own wonderful tales for seven minutes or less, judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists will be chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will steal your affection and make your heart pound.
