Mark Z. Danielewski’s ‘The Fifty Year Sword’ enhanced e-book will change the way we read ebooks

The Fifty Year Sword, by Mark Z. Danielewski

We hear a lot of stories here about how this or that ebook is going to fundamentally change the ebook. And to varying degrees these books do and don’t tweak the paradigm, so we take such news with a grain of salt.

But when Mark Z. Danielewski reinvents the ebook, we take notice. On Slate’s Future Tense blog, Kim O’Connor reports that the author’s new The Fifty Year Sword is “a key project in [Pantheon’s] strategic development plan and a category changer in the realm of digitized adult fiction.”

Color us intrigued.
