Feel like print science fiction could use a kick in the pants to propel it into modernity? Local author Daniel D.W. may have just published the novel you’re looking for.
Newly released in both ebook and print editions, hive | Propolis tells the story of Samantha Plessis, first as a young girl who watches the world change around her, all the way to fifty years old, as she is pulled into a growing societal rift and decides to fight in a resistance army.
But that’s only a hint of the central narrative. As hive | Propolis‘ order page explains,
The first book of it’s kind, hive | Propolis includes a new and unique twist with dynamic scannable QR codes embedded within the book itself. This provides story-enhancing soundtrack, video and animation, and interactive story clues that invite a reader to take part in a real-world transmedia rabbit hole.
Also, be sure to note the differences between the ebook and printed formats, as only the paperback edition will link to future interactive materials.
But that’s not all. Hive bills itself as a whole narrative ecosystem, comprising novels, user-generated fiction, films, and an interactive alternate reality game that will be revealed through these various texts. You should really just check out Hive’s central hub to read descriptions, see the trailer, look at images, and read up on the call for writers!
If you’re looking for 21st century science fiction that escapes the page itself, this is it. Be excited.
It can be purchase via Amazon.
