Although I've not read him, I know that Alexander McCall Smith is quite popular in the U.S. for his "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" novels, so some of you may enjoy what Mr. Smith is doing over on the Telegraph's website. The man is writing an online novel there, adding one chapter per day, called Corduroy Mansions and the Telegraph is making it available to readers via a variety of delivery mechanisms.
Smith has been working the project for a while now, but it is not too late to catch up and then get in on the fun of reading a new chapter each day. Just follow this link to the fun.
(Alexander McCall Smith, who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, is a British writer and expert on medical law who has written over 60 books since 1981. He appears to have at least four more books in the works for 2009.)
I don't think I'll have the time to experience this cool concept for myself, so I'd love to hear from anyone who reads this one. Have fun.
