The early XXth century saw a glut of dead writers adding over 5 million words to Literature from beyond the grave; some work garnering critical acclaim, becoming best-sellers and making fortunes.
The "Literary Medium" tells the forgotten and extra-ordinary stories of these best-selling books written over the Ouija Board, of the ghosts sued for breach of contract and of the Puritan woman who edited a magazine and got a Hollywood movie deal despite having been dead for over two centuries. We will delve into the forgotten women behind these stories, the methods they used, read from these posthumous works (including revelations from Shakespeare's own autobiography), and who knows...?
Maybe see if we ourselves can get one of the Greats out of retirement one last time...
