"The punchiest thing to hit literature since Hemingway"
— Chicago Reader
Chapter 83: It Gets Worse
We're back in the bosom of the Hideout, hunkered down and awaiting the worst. That taste in your mouth - fear? Despair? Rage? Whatever caustic fluid may bubble up (and here at WRITE CLUB we prefer yellow bile four to one over the other leading humors), come wash it down with some good old fashioned trash talk and booze. Bathe with your fellows in the yellow-orange glow of a burning Republic. Dance to the martial rhythms and tunes of a balalaika orchestra while kicking the necrotic body of Lady Liberty to the curb. Приготовьтесь радоваться и твердо обнимать свой новый и славный образ жизни! Свобода и личная свобода мертвы! Да здравствует клептократия!
Join us, won't you?

Join Overlord Ian Belknap (New City's "Lit 50 2013/15" list) as he presides over a new dawn in WRITE CLUB Chicago's history, as we slog across this leach field of gloom we call life without our beacon of sunshine and kinetic energy, Lindsay Muscato. BUT - there will be CASH PRIZES. What else? There will be literary derring-do. There will be rallying cries and calls for subjugation. There will be death knells and fresh hells. There will be somebody - SOMEBODY - onstage with Belknap to help him keep his shit together. WHO MIGHT THAT BE?

If all that doesn't thrill the pants of off you there's always this: Tuesday night drinking. A really great bar. Smart people reading things they wrote out loud. And there's also the drinking.

Only THREE of these valiant lionhearts will capture a Loving Cup of Deathless Fucking Glory - lend your voice to this crucial decision

Amy Eaton (SYSTEM) vs. Danette Chavez (CHAOS)

Andrew Bentley (ERODE) vs. Casey Pilkenton (EXPLODE)
