The serialized novel is back

by Jess

And better than ever?

As of Monday, the University of Michigan Press has begun serializing two novels on its facebook page, Marjorie Kowalski Cole’s A Spell On the Water and Becky Thacker’s Faithful Unto Death. The online serializations are free and will likely be available until Labor Day, but you can still buy a print or electronic version.

I think the concept is interesting, and I love to see facebook being used in such a creative fashion, but I certainly don’t want to sit at my computer to read a whole novel.

Onward and upward, though, I suppose. We’ll see how it goes.
