David Wright is one half of Collective Inkwell, a publishing company specializing in dark fiction and serialized fiction. He also loves to write about himself in third person. (No, not really. But it seems more formal this way than me addressing you. Which, I've just now ruined. Way to go, Dave. I swear, we don't interrupt like this in our books.)Inspired by Stephen King's serialized story, "The Green Mile," Wright and co-author Sean Platt set out to bring serials back into fashion in summer 2011 with their post-apocalyptic serial, Yesterday's Gone. (This, for the record, would be the first time either of them have helped bring anything into "fashion." Ask Sean about the Nintendosaurus sweater his mom made for him.) Empowered by the freedom that Amazon has given self-publishers to find and build their audiences without a midddleman, the duo found enough success to make a living doing what they love. The writing duo release their books in 10,000-24,000 word "episodes" with six episodes making up a "season," which is then compiled into a book for readers who prefer to read in bigger chunks.Platt and Wright also draw inspiration from their favorite serialized TV shows, such as LOST, Fringe, The Wire, Mad Men, The Killing, The Walking Dead, Carnivale, and the more recent version of Battlestar Galactica. (Man, we watch too much TV!)With a weekly release schedule of every Tuesday, just like their favorite networks who always have a new serialized show waiting every Sunday, the duo want to be the HBO or AMC of the Kindle generation. (How awesome it would be to have that cool clicking-the-TV-on thing that HBO does, or the AMC graphic with the suspenseful music swell in the background right before our show! Oh, and strictly speaking, we release a short story or two between our season compilations, but there IS a new book every Tuesday!)When he's not writing books, David can be found writing about writing and pop culture at his blog http://DavidwWright.com. In his "off-time" he can be found chasing his five year old around the house, cleaning up a cat whose sole talent is producing prolific amounts of hair and poop, or ranting about stuff as his wife rolls her eyes. (And writing about himself in third person while drinking dangerously high amounts of diet cola like the rebel he is.)In September 2012, the writing duo signed a deal with Amazon Publishing's 47North to write two Kindle Serials, Z 2134 and Monstrous.

(I received a copy through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.)I seldom read serials, and I admit that reading one in the shape of a “novel” of gathered episodes kind of defeats the purpose (all the more since the authors mention their love of cliffhangers at the end), but… nevermind. I was...

I picked up Yesterday's Gone after reading and enjoying the authors' WhiteSpace: Episode 1. I was surprised that I didn't like this better, because I typically love the apocalypse genre. The book focuses on a handful of characters, with the points of view switching among them with each chapter. They...
