The age of the digi-novel

Convergence is truly here. Level 26, a crime fiction, created by Anthony Zuiker is a book, website and movie rolled into one. Apparently, once you go past 20 pages you'll be directed to a website which has a link to a 3-minute video clip that connects to the story. He calls these cyber-bridges. And is of the opinion that it'll do readers of today (with limited attention spans) a whole deal of good. Now, will it replace traditional publishing? Not sure. But it sure brings in renewed vigour into the world of book publishing.
