Suvudu, Random House’s online site for science fiction and fantasy fans, has revealed the brackets for its March Madness-style tournament for fiction.
The fourth annual Cage Match 2014 kicks off on March 10, and will feature five weeks of writing battles. Suvudu invites writers to submit stories based on specific fictional battles. This year’s theme is “Page versus Screen” and writers are challenged to pit characters from sci-fi and fantasy books against characters from television and film. For example, one battle is Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games versus Trillian of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Fans can then vote on their favorite stories and one winner will be selected at the end.
