From the Writer’s Blog:
Tor senior editor Patrick Nielsen Haydenannounced what he calls a “unique new project.” Tor will publish bestselling author John Scalzi’s next book The Human Division as a weekly serialized ebook. Later, the book will be released in its entirety as an ebook and a hardcover.
Hayden says, “The Human Division will be an experiment: an episodic novel, released initially in digital, serialized form. Currently the plan is to publish these episodes weekly in, roughly, December 2012 through February 2013. Like the episodes of a good high-end cable drama, each one will have enough internal integrity to work as an enjoyable chunk of story on its own, but each will advance a ‘season’-long storyline as well.”
