In this electronic age (the cliches just roll off the tongue), it's interesting watching how publishing is changing. Golden Relic was commission by the Museum of Victoria as a lead up to the International Council of Museums triennial conference in Melbourne. The brief was to write a thriller, one chapter at a time, on the Internet.
Having just posted my top 10 (with wiggle room) on 4MA - I thought I'd repeat it here. Mind you, it's a thankless task having to pick an arbitrary number out of all the great books I've been lucky enough to read this year....
Golden Relic was originally released in 1997 as an online serialised novel. At Clan Destine Press (disclaimer - I'm the person who did the "techy" stuff in turning the manuscript into an ebook), we decided a while ago that this book deserved another Internet outing.
In the words of the author "Well, what I did in 1997 makes me a pioneer of the World Wide Web.
Yep, me, Lindy Cameron, Australian crime writer – an Internet Pioneer. And I deserve those capital letters, because I really did boldly go where none had gone before."
