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.

Ratings and Reviews
Have I Missed Something?
I downloaded the app based on a recommendation in Tech Magazine, and in particular because I am pretty interested in the concept of interactive stories.
As there was is no mention of in app purchases in the app description I anticipated that the short stories were included in the app, but this certainly to me would appear not to be the case. Each of the titles of the stories are greyed out so I cannot access any of the content bar the introduction.
I am reluctant to rate the app in anyway until such time as I know if I am missing something fundamental here, can anyone advise me?
a showcase for a very interesting platform
the idea of an interactive, non-linear short story is amazing and well executed. The example stories on the app are interesting.. and any story that references the Isle of Sheppey gets my vote.
The stories are all unlocked by opening the introduction to the book.
