Max Gladstone (Last First Snow), Brian Staveley (Providence of Fire), Elizabeth Bear (Karen Memory), and James Cambias (Corsair) duel it out at Phoenix Books, Burlington!  These four Tor authors will compete against one another by trying to out-dramatically read from their works and others, along with a bit of audience participation. This event is presented in partnership with Geek Mountain State.
