From the creators of the Frankenstein app comes an anthology of 11 new interactive short stories, by writers from all around the world. As you read each story, you make the choices that determine how the story will continue.
*** Praise for Frankenstein: "The benchmark for storytelling on a tablet" - Kirkus Reviews (Best of 2012 award)
Selected for publication by a panel from publishing and game design, these stories will make you laugh, cry, shiver and think. Ghost stories, adventures, comic capers sit alongside high and low fantasy, ecological disasters, virulent epidemics and mind-twisting time-travel.
The stories were created using inklewriter, a free site for writing and sharing interactive stories. They were selected from entrants to the 2012 Future Voices competition which attracted entries from over 60 countries.

Good revival of an old idea
When I was a kid I loved the "make your own story" books, so I found myself attracted to this app in a very real and nostalgic way. I've read two of the stories thus far (rereading with every possible choice, just as I did when I was younger) and I'm almost hesitant to read on, I don't want it to end too quickly :)
I hope this catches on and more people show an interest. It would be a shame if this falls to the wayside. Great app, so far, great stories too!
This is fantastic, as are the stories, giving the reader the opportunity to insert his or her choice within these short stories changes their depth in a way I wasn't prepared for, excited to take them time to sit down and read the rest of them, thanks for putting this together, I think I might write my own version of this now.
I love how you can make a story! The only thing I would fix is that you can make stories on the app and not an the website, but it is still really fun! I love to make stories and send them to my friends!
