Well, I guess it was only a matter of time before something like this happened … it could go either way, but with a talented guy like Dan Wickline writing, I might actually have to check this out … 140 characters at a time!
A NEW FOGG ROLLS IN
Read the new Lucius Fogg Mystery as it is being created for free!
At Comicon International 2009, writer Dan Wickline debuted his exclusive novella, Three Little Ladies All in the Morgue: a Lucius Fogg Mystery. The tale introduced the world to the enigmatic detective Lucius Fogg and his assistant Jimmy Doyle. The limited edition print run sold out quickly and readers have been clamoring for more. Wickline has begun work on a full-length novel but didn’t want readers to have to wait any longer… So he will simultaneously be writing a new novella of the character exclusively on Twitter.
Starting July 1st and running until its completion, The Werewolves of Paddington Court: a Lucius Fogg Mystery will be written live at http://www.Twitter.com/LuciusFogg. This is not a previously created tale being re-published. Each entry of the story will be posted as it is written and will conform to the 140 character limitation inherent to a Twitter site. Fans of Wickline’s comic or prose writing will get new material as it is being created and gain a unique look into the creative process as it happens.
The Lucius Fogg Mysteries are set in the 1950s and detail the cases of detective/occultist Lucius Fogg as he assists his clients with the strange and supernatural that runs rampant through the streets of New York City. The stories are narrated by Fogg’s assistant, WWII vet Jimmy Doyle. In The Werewolves of Paddington Court there has been a rash of savagely brutalized corpses found that has local police believing a vicious animal is loose in the city… And Fogg’s latest client happens to be a werewolf.
