Have just checked out Penguin’s We Tell Stories: Six Authors: Six Stories: Six Weeks page [thanks to Ewan’s blog for the tip]. It pulls together some amazing authors in a mashup with Google Earth. As the plots progress, you move from real location to location.
Had a crack at reading Charles Cummings’ 21 Steps…brought back some great memories of London, although the frequent clicking on to the next part of the story somewhat broke my concentration. Still, a neat way to illustrate and explore the concept of setting as relates to theme and character, not to mention the concept of narrative structure.
And a different story every week. Can’t be bad.
