Biography

Levi Asher founded Literary Kicks, one of the most popular and enduring literary websites on the Internet, in 1994 while working as a software developer on Wall Street. A constant innovator at the intersection of web culture and alternative literature, he has launched a number of unique projects including Queensboro Ballads (a story cycle in the form of a 1960s folk-rock album), Coffeehouse: Writings From The Web (the first anthology of web writing published in book form, in 1997) and Notes From Underground (a digital movie based on the Dostoevsky novel). Asher has also published a poetry chapbook, Tiger's Milk, and frequently performs at poetry readings around New York City and elsewhere.

In 2011, Asher announced a new book publishing venture at Literary Kicks. The first published title was "Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)".

Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)
By Marc Stein
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 9,470. Language: English. Published: April 24, 2011. Category: Essay
A completely new approach to the ethics of Ayn Rand! "Ayn Rand deserves to be taken seriously, and she deserves to be seriously refuted", argues author Levi Asher, who offers to take on any Objectivist believers on purely logical grounds and prove that Ayn Rand was a flawed, if fascinating, philosopher. An essential study of one of the most influential and relevant thinkers of our time.
