Celebrate Australian crime writing with a fight to the literary death (well, sort of)! The crime edition of Literary Death Match — the worldwide sensation that’s taken place in 73 cities around the world, led by MC and ringmaster Adrian Todd Zuniga — brings together four crime writers to read from their latest books in four thrilling performances. Cassie McCullagh, Benjamin Stevenson, and Caroline Overington, our three judicious, jocular and jaunty judges in response in their own inimitable fashion. They’ll focus on literary merit, performance and “intangibles” (whatever that means) before picking two writers to go onto the finals where they’ll compete in a vaguely literary game to decide the ultimate winner. Who will take home the grand prize, Captivating Candice, Terrific Tim, Remarkable Rob or Amazing Anne? See it live to find out, and know that anything can happen. One thing’s for sure, there will be (metaphorical) blood.
