Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible, 2007) vs. Larry Doyle (I Love You, Beth Cooper, 2007). (Read about it on Galleycat.) I’m not sure if I even understand what set Grossman off, but I like the way he throws down the gauntlet.
“Be it known that my mother has written a stiffly worded letter to the New Yorker,” Grossman adds. “And ordinarily this would be enough. Ordinarily. As the challenged party,the terms of engagement are yours to select. Although I strenuously urge you to avoid Atari Combat or Quake 1 or any of the early Virtua Fighter series, or mid-’80s X-Men trivia; such is my mastery of these modes of conflict, that to choose any of these would be naught be but a perverse act of self-destruction.”
Couldn’t they just settle it in the ring?
