The next 'Level' of thriller fiction
USA Today reports that CSI creator Anthony Zuiker has partnered with crime writer Duane Swierczynski for a series of thrillers augmented by "cyber-bridges," dramatic online videos with actors playing characters from the novel. Level 26: Dark Origins, published by Dutton this September, stars a rogue investigator who hunts serial killers. Zuiker says the dual-media format, dubbed the "digi-novel," will launch a "revolution in publishing for the YouTube generation." Swierczynski also shares details on his blog.
