Web Stories

Pioneering a whole new approach to story-telling that combines everything from Google Maps to Boolean Technologies, Penguin UK has launched a new Web Lit enterprise. Presently there are six projects at We Tell Stories. Each is written by a prominent contemporary author--but, their stories are inspired by favorite fairy tales or well-known classics. The 21 Steps is far and away my favorite. Written by Charles Cumming and based on a famous WWI spy novel by John Buchan, it is a remarkable feat of imagination wed to modern internet technologies.
