  1. Neat! I'm astounded that none of the Amazon reviews I've seen have mentioned House Of Leaves. The concept and execution seem very similar. Looking forward to it.

  2. Yup. My immediate thought was, "It's like House of Leaves! With bits you can lose!"

  3. I hope this will be authentic to the J.J. Abrams tradition and will include:
    1) Literary depictions of lens-flares
    2) Abandonment of major plot points for no particular reason
    3) A nonsensical ending that makes one regret ever spending time on it.

  4. How do I get in on that "conceived of" deal? Any writers want to do the actual work? I'll be your ideas man in exchange for top billing.

  5. When you think about it, a deliberately burned page is kind of like a lensflare for a book.

    Kind of.
