    Looks like a nice nod to the author of one of my favorite fantasy books — The Neverending Story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Ende

    Nice? Screw nice! This was great, awesome infact. Thanks for the link Mark!

    Totally stunning. My only complaint is that I found this so early into it’s production and that there’s only one chapter to read!

    Love the vertical layout too. Nothing short of brilliant. (if you think about it, more functional text-based web pages tend to be laid out like this, the brilliance is in the simplicity).

    I love this format. Scrolling is much nicer than having to change pages.

      Absolutely. Before I even noticed the beautiful art, I was struck by how functional the scrolling was in service of the story. It just pulls you along whereas the page turns, particularly online, break your immersion. Can’t recall seeing this before. Kudos all around.

    There is this comfortable familiarity coupled with an unpredictability of the story thus far that has got me totally hooked. I really enjoyed the artwork with the simple yet burningly effective interface and am VERY MUCH looking forward to supporting it.

    Beautiful use of color. I agree, the vertical scrolling is particularly effective for storytelling on the web.

    Wow. This is so beautiful and well thought out. It might just be enough to suck me into a genre that I’ve intentionally avoided.
