LitKicks Goes Kindle

The ever-interesting Levi Asher has started up his own line of ebooks for the Amazon Kindle, promising one every month for the next twelve months. as he puts it:

You see, the reason I’ve been prickly about this whole e-book thing all along is that I’ve always wanted to publish in electronic formats, and I’m thrilled that the technology is finally good enough to make the dream a reality. The business plan I’m about to begin executing is an aggressive one (I never do things halfway). I’m going to publish one book a month for the next twelve months.

The books, he says, will range from extensions of popular LitKicks content to “completely new and original works.” And you can now order for $2.99 the first title, Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters).

As Levi puts it:

†he first title, Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters) is a completely new and rewritten version of a series of essays I’ve posted here during the past two months. The great comments and feedback these articles received helped me to spot the weak points in my own writings, and I’ve reconceived the whole set of essays as a unified work with a new structure and many rewritten sections.


The Surrender is Veronica Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning how she embraced her true gender.


Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
