New on The Hyperliterature Exchange for September 2005: Edward Picot reviews "Intimacies", an email novel by the USA writer Eric Brown.
"For a work of hyperliterature, Intimacies was heavily publicised and widely written-about when it first came out at the beginning of 2004. Articles about it appeared in the New York Times and (in the UK) the Guardian. According to Eric Brown it was downloaded about 5,000 times in its first four months online, and the figure is now up to about 8,000... So what, if anything, is the fuss all about?"
