San Francisco, California

In the sagelike words of Elton John: "Saturday night's alright for fighting." Thus, Literary Death Match returns to the literary wonderland of San Francisco for a homerun of a night that with loads of talent that'll tickle your funny bone, crush your writers block, and wow you at many turns. Preorder now!
What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 7 minutes or less. They're judged by 3 all-star judges who respond (often comedically) to the work before choosing 2 finalists to compete in the LDM finale, a vaguely literary game (think Pin the Mustache on Hemingway) to decide the ultimate champion.
Literary Merit: Eli Horowitz, co-creator of The Silent History and one-third of Ying Horowitz & Quinn
Performance: Sylvie Simmons, renowned rock journalist/musician and author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard
