Via one of the many online incarnations of John Scalzi comes news of a novel written entirely in mobile phone text messages. Part of me wants to shrug this off as a sure-to-flop gimmick; part of me wants lament the decline and cheapening of the written word. All of me wants to drink heavily.
One thought on “ZOMFG!! SMS nvl lol”
Oddly enough, the Japanese novel “Deep Love” was initially distributed as brief text messages. It was easy to read in short bursts on the train, and could be forwarded to friends. Built-in word-of-mouth marketing.
Since then, it has been made into a printed novel, comic book, and I think a movie as well.
