Interactive Fiction for the Digital Age


For Vocativ, Allee Manning speaks with novelist-turned-digital-publisher Sean Michaels, creator of The Seers Catalogue, an “interactive piece of narrative literature” that has reimagined the old-school click-through Internet mysteries (door one or two?) into complex interactive fiction for the digital age. Readers unfold their own literary journey, embellished with illustrations, a soundtrack, and “other audiovisual elements” meant to create narrative literature that consumes until “you find yourself falling into [the] story.”
