My name is Levi Asher. This is me, and that's my guitar and my son and my book collection.
I created Literary Kicks in July 1994, and have been running it continuously (with occasional short sanity breaks) ever since. Litkicks is about literature ... and also about philosophy, art, history, religion, society, culture, music, politics, technology, nature, psychology, life. The articles are written by either me or one of several great contributors. If you have an idea for an article, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We always love to get your feedback via comments to every piece we publish.
In 2010, we began publishing original books. Our most popular title is Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters), which emerged from our Philosophy Weekend blog post series. We've also published Beats In Time: A Literary Generation's Legacy, a collection of our Beat Generation pieces, The Cards I'm Playing: Poker and Postmodern Literature, a study of Texas Hold'em as a literary activity, and Chiaroscuro: Assorted Literary Essays, a collection of the very best essays that have appeared on this site.
ADVERTISING: We love to run ads for great books or high quality products that would appeal to our readership. We work with BlogAds.com for all ad sales.
REVIEW POLICY: Due to the overwhelming number of worthy novels and fiction collections published every year, we do not try to review new novels by emerging authors. Instead, we cover fiction by keeping an ear to the ground and following recommendations to help us find the next new writers to love. We are more likely to accept review copies for unusual works or non-fiction books covering specific subjects we are interested in. If you would like to discuss sending a review copy, please email email@example.com or send to:

MORE ABOUT ME AND THE SITE: Since Litkicks has been around since the early dawn of web culture, we've been through a lot of changes, and I've seen a whole lot of stuff go down. If you'd like to know more about the long history of this website and the secrets of its quirky creator, please read my memoir of Silicon Alley, 1993 to 2003. This attempted autobiography is still untitled, unedited and incomplete, but the story it tells may burn your ears.
