L. Lee Lowe’s “Mortal Ghost”

I’ve had this one sitting in my inbox for a shocking amount of time now (sorry Lee), and I’ve spent most of that time dithering over whether to post it here or not. I’ll quickly add, that’s not because it’s bad! I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in young adult fantasy. Lee offers a range of formats to experience the novel (blog, pdf or podcasts), and he has released the novel under a Creative Commons license. Both of these elements – the chance to comment directly as the story is posted, and the CC license, suggest he is much more forward-thinking than almost all the big-name authors out there.

I’ve procrastinated on posting because this residency blog is supposed to be about those types of electronic literature that can’t be reproduced in print. But what’s the point of having rules if you can’t break them now and again? Nice one Lee, good luck with the new novel… and I’ll try to be more prompt next time around!
