serial stories and essays by Dan Szczesny
1st installment will go live by 15 August 2019.
What do A Tale of Two Cities, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Jungle, and In Cold Blood have in common? All of these great classics started life as serial tales, told over the course of months or years through the pages of periodicals. Now, noted Granite State author Dan Szczesny will try a modern take on this model. Through the course of 12 installments, Dan will develop a follow-up collection to The White Mountain (Hobblebush Books, 2018) — exploring additional interactions that generations of folks have had with Mt. Washington, New Hampshire. Folded Word will essentially serve as an “incubator” for the book: editing/producing the serial pieces, publishing a Boutique Edition as a test-run, and managing the fundraising needed for Dan’s research and our development of the project. Once complete, the twelve-tale collection will be submitted for review as a potential title for Hobblebush Books.
