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.
