Glitter & Mayhem: The Speculative Nightclub Anthology
We have a hell of a 62nd episode coming up for you on October 1st. Lace up your disco skates and powder your nose, because nothing goes better with a little Funk than a whole lot of Glitter & Mayhem!

The first half of our wild and crazy program will feature Noël Jones, Holly McDowell, and Order of Odd-Fish author James Kennedy. Since this is the guy who once challenged Neil Gaiman to a fight for the Newbery Medal, anything could happen—and probably will!

Then the second half of our dance card will be filled up with authors and editors from the new, Kickstarter-funded, speculative nightclub anthology Glitter & Mayhem! Maurice Broaddus, Kyle S. Johnson, William Shunn, and Laura Chavoen will be on hand for a multimedia spectacle bringing all the fabulous madness and debauchery of classic clubland to life.

Throw in one of our patented Poems by Bill, a fistful of Haiku by Andrew, and your pick of cold beers from around the world, and you've got all the ingredients for a night you might regret—if you can even remember it the next morning.

The needle drops at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, October 1st, 2013, with your DJs D-Billy and Huffmaster, in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. We start seating at 7:00 pm and no earlier. Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older.
