Unmakers: Wikified Makers in hypertext form

Adam created UnMakers using the Creative-Commons-licensed text of my novel Makers. It opens with the final scene, and invites you to navigate the text that led up to it hypertextually, following character-based indexes to the text. He'd like it if you'd annotate and further link the text, which is in a wiki.


  1. Reminds me of the time I realized a friend hadn’t read Gibson’s first trilogy (Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive), so I gave them to him in reverse order. Since it’s more a web of loose connections than driving plotline, I though they should read just as well that way. No way to measure equivalence, but he said that everything felt right to him.

  2. I love this idea.

    It would be fun to see this done with a Dickens novel, with it’s hundreds of characters that all roll together into the final scene!
