The McKinnon Account

A short story about your first day working at Hunter, Brown & Shen, told over the course of a single morning via several emails and a few text messages. Once you've registered, it begins for you at 9am the next day. (For extra verisimilitude, sign up on a Sunday so it plays out while you're at work of a Monday morning.) Call it an ARG without the G?

A History of the Future in 100 Objects

What are the 100 objects that future historians will pick to define our 21st century? A javelin thrown by an enhanced Paralympian, far further than any normal human?

The River Caller

I've written and self-published a book. This is my first try, so I decided to go with Amazon Kindle self-publish. This is part 1 of a multi-volume work that I'm planning on publishing in the same manner. I've priced it as low as Amazon will allow (2.99). The River Caller is a story centering around a boy named George, who lives in Ogdensburg, New York, in the late 19th Century. It is primarily a story about life on the Saint Lawrence River, but there are things about George that are a little out of the ordinary. [more inside]

Wanderlust, an experimental mobile storytelling platform

Wanderlust is a new way to tell location-based stories on smartphones from Six to Start. Instead of readers having to be in specific physical locations (like setting a Sherlock Holmes story in Baker Street, London), Wanderlust sets stories in classes of location. Act 1 might be in any cafe in the world, Act 2 in any museum, Act 3 in any bar. It's more like atmosphere-based storytelling. [more inside]
