novelling

A new work of electronic literature created by Will Luers, Roger Dean and Other Room reader Hazel Smith.

novelling is a recombinant digital novel that employs text, video, and sound. It poses questions about the acts of reading and writing fiction. Readerly and cinematic, the work unfolds through suggested narrative connections between four characters. The characters, immersed in their isolated life-worlds, appear to be transported elsewhere by what they are reading. Are they reading and thinking each other? The variable and deterministic system of selection and arrangement produces a fluid, ever-novel and potential narrative.

Available now on the New Binary Press site.
