    WETWARE explores an aspect of Stephen King's career that I previously hadn't given much thought to: namely, his willingness to explore innovative new methods of storytelling through digital mediums (i.e., primitive video games, early eBooks, virtual comic books, etc.). Publishing his work in unusual formats has brought him both a great deal of success and controversy.It's a subject that is definitely worth exploring, and WETWARE does a pretty decent job, albeit in a very meat-and-potatoes kind of way. A few pictures would have been nice...WETWARE will be of great interest to Stephen King fans, but one can't help but be a little let down by its brevity and lack of any real insight into its subject matter.

    Kevin Quigley has done and excellent job of finding topics related to Stephen King that have not been thoroughly discussed previously. This particular entry covers the electronic publishing history of the mastermind of horror. The expected entries are here from "Riding the Bullet" to "The Plant" but as with all of Quigley's chapbooks he goes much deeper. I learned about "The Mist" text-based adventure as well as the little publicized prerelease of "Umney's Last Case". Quigley does repeat himself sometimes, especially if you have read more than one of this Chapbooks. I highly recommend this as a one sitting read to learn a little more about the history of Stephen King.

    King has always been willing to experiment with various media, especially electronic -- years ago Riding the Bullet was the first eBook I ever bought. It was interesting to read about all the other things King has done, including some I'd never heard of. Quigley knows his King!
