Max Barry Pulls a Dickens

Ah, I love this! Max Barry’s Machine Man, which he’s writing and posting online at the rate of a page a day, will be published as a book, too. Barry’s happy that he gets to have it both ways:

[T]his is a significant step for a publisher, and Iím really happy Vintage took it. I didn’t want to take down my online serial. That would be like leading my child into a forest and abandoning her there. Then, I guess, going home and building a new child based on the first one. And offering her in print form. Wait. This analogy may have gotten away from me.

Give it a peek if you haven’t already.

Tell him I'm waiting for him to kick off his serialization of The Tempest in modern language!
