Interesting that "gliterature" wins in the Google race.  I'd guess
this blend is based largely on the earlier "glitterati", which I've
usually seen with a double-t.  In fact a Google race on those shows
the double-t version winning in a landslide, 34,500 to 452.  But then
"literature" is more established in the English lexicon than
"literati" is.
