Storytelling by blog: Dracula

Blogs are one of many Web 2.0 storytelling platforms. Today’s example is my Draculablog, which posts Bram Stoker’s novel to the web on the same dates as the book indicates.

For example, the post for today, May 3, is Jonathan Harker’s journal entry for that date:

3 May. Bistritz.– Left Munich at 8:35 P.M., on 1st May, arriving at Vienna early next morning; should have arrived at 6:46, but train was an hour late. Buda-Pesth seems a wonderful place…

The Draculablog posts the entire novel over the next six months, along with annotations, maps, images, and discussion.

Many thanks to Andrew Connell for yeoman work on mapping and site scripting.
