Mashup Serialization at DeadBooks.com
A rather unusual science fiction multimedia project is up and running at Deadbooks.com. From the producers introduction -
For the last eight years, underground content creator, PantherRun Productions LLC has been working on a new form of SF/Horror entertainment for the web called The Deadbooks Project. With the help of 30 actors and about 40 musical groups from almost as many countries, they're taking a novel and transforming it into something that has yet to be seen on the Net.

Web-launch of the first 10 hour season is now.Recruiting Science Fiction Readers
