Through the Clock’s Workings is out! This is the anthology from the Remix My Lit project, edited by Amy Barker. My mash-up story ‘Again, the Healing Tickle (the Way Black Glitters)’ is the very last one in the collection.
Here’s the blurb for this very unique (and interactive) collection:
Through the Clock’s Workings
Edited by Amy Barker
Sydney University Press
A world first! The first remixed and remixable anthology of literature.
This anthology of short stories is not some textual tome, frozen in time and space. It is alive, evolving organically in a constant state of flux. Why? Because each story is available under a Creative Commons licence, giving you rights to share and reuse the book as you see fit.
So how do you use a remixable anthology? Simple.
Step 1 – Read. Thumb your way through the pages at will. Find the stories you love, the ones you hate, the ones that could be better.
Step 2 – Re/create. Each story is yours to share and to remix. Use only one paragraph or character or just make subtle changes. Change the genre, alter its formal or stylistic characteristics, or revise its message. Use as little or as much as you like – as long as it works.
Step 3 – Share. Be part of a growing community of literature remixing. Post your remixes to the Remix My Lit website, remixmylit.com, and start sharing. The entire anthology can be remixed – the original stories, the remixes, and even the fonts.
Through the Clock’s Workings is Read&Write!
And there are still several hours to enter the May haiku comp. Win books!
