eBooks in Hypertext
Here’s a neat trend: authors publishing ebooks as web pages in advance of their completion:
- Kitbashed, the Definitive Guide to the Inspirational Ancestry of Star Wars by Michael Heilemann, which features photos and video clips that show the works of art that influenced Star Wars.
- Poisoned Chalice, the Extremely Long and Incredibly Complex Story of Marvelman by Pádraig Ó Méalóid, about the character that started as a copy of Captain Marvel and became the famously unavailable Alan Moore comic.
- Grant Morrison’s Day-Glo Years by Patrick Meaney, a follow-up to Tim Callahan’s Grant Morrison: the Early Years.
You can read the entirety of each book–as much as has been posted, that is–on the sites for free. When the authors are finished, they will likely offer the whole works as ebooks.
