I don’t think people understand that I don’t just want books to read them - even having them around makes me feel better. Stacks of books on my desk and a paperback in my hands, even just seeing a book, it makes me feel calm and safe, their presence is magic.
Storium is an awesome collaborative online storytelling game in which you and your friends (or strangers) play characters who interact through a series of scenes, overcoming challenges and writing your own unique story.
The Narrator chooses the world that the story is set in (with choices such as ‘occult pulp horror’, ‘medical drama’ and ‘cyberpunk’), then starts each scene, using cards to give the players challenges to overcome. The other players then try to overcome these challenges, progressing the story in fun and interesting ways.
It’s a clever storycrafting experience that nurtures creativity, imagination and interaction.

while he ate. Source

I don’t doubt this is an amazing novel plot and character wise, but I am struggling with the authors voice as it alludes to a time and age I can’t relate with. Nevermind, once I hit the thick of the plot I’m sure I’ll be swayed!
