Viking/Penguin UK is releasing The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters in digital form, but in serial format, so readers can download the book one chapter at a time. The first two chapters – Temple and Cardinal – are offered as free downloads for a limited time. The individual chapter designs have been carried over from the very limited-edition hard-copy weekly serial that was offered in 2006. Each cover has its own images and period grace notes – as a set they’re everything an author could desire.
Eventually all three books of the trilogy will be available in this very cool format.
To celebrate this release, I posted a few things to the Penguin Tumblr feed. You can click through from the announcement, or go straight to posts on cinematic influences for The Glass Books, my favorite bookstore in New York, two looks at my bookshelves, and a handful of research images for The Glass Books world.
