Welcome to the launch of The Weeklings Reading Series. Part of our exploring the essay and experimenting in form includes seeing what we can achieve in other formats. For our first venture into ebooks we’ve collected Sam Byers’s four-part essay that was serialized on the site.
“The End of the End of Everything: Fiction’s Fretful Futures” takes stock of the novel in the age of Facebook and Internet-blocking software Freedom. The author of the forthcoming novel Idiopathy, Byers says that far from facing extinction, the novel may well prove to be the medium most readily able to absorb and reflect our strange, info-soaked future.
We are offering this title absolutely free. You can download it right here:
Or you can buy it for $0.99 at Amazon.
Stay tuned for our other efforts where essays and conversations converge. We at The Weeklings believe that technology isn’t the problem but full of possibilities.
