Man oh man it was hard for me to make myself go out into the wind and rain to see Friday’s Literary Death Match at the Elbo Room.

But I did because Beth Spotswood was reading, and I love me some Beth. And I’m glad I slogged through the wet, because she was fantastic.

But if you missed the show, you can read Beth’s account of the evening here, and watch SF Literary Culture Examiner Evan Karp‘s recording of her reading (embedded above). It’l be like you were practically there!
