A Circumnavigation

Excellent fantasy author Catherynne Valente has taken action against the economic meltdown of the western world by asking readers to support the writing of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. As I write Valente’s initiative has already generated enough support to alleviate the financial crisis she was facing, but please do pop over and donate if you are a fan of her writing.

I’m genuinely very excited to see Valente’s novel appear in real time online. I’ve been fascinated with the idea of serial fiction for some time, because the concept of shaping a novel episode by episode online seems so natural in the internet era. I wish Catherynne every luck and will be reading every Monday.
