Zola Books got their staff to propose a literary Hunger Games, nominating their favourite characters from novels that might stand a chance in a literary death match.  

I’m thrilled that Kirby from The Shining Girls made the list of tributes (hey, catching fire, shining, same thing, really), up against the likes of Scott Pilgrim and Tyler Durden as well as less obvious, but inspired nominations such as Terry Pratchett’s Granny Weatherwax and Mr Kurtz from Heart of Darkness.

Kelly Gallucci from Zola Books did a great interview with me recently, which is probably one of my favourites – and they seemed to think so too – it’s in their Best Author Interviews of 2013 List along with Meg Cabot, John Scalzi, Caroline Leavitt, Isaac Marion and Mitch Moxley.
