Welcome to Side Stories
Sequels and Bonus Content
Side Stories is set up to be optional to the Literary Letters experience, so you must subscribe to it separately.
This is where I will send out updates on side projects related to Literary Letters.
Here’s what you can look forward to:
Background on The Lightning Conductor (why I chose it, who wrote it, the Brass Era of motor cars, the German models that inspired Molly’s motorcar…)
Sequels to The Lightning Conductor. The Williamsons wrote three sequels to The Lightning Conductor - The Lightning Conductor Discovers America, The Lightning Conductress, and The Lightning Conductor Comes Back. While Literary Letters proper moves on to other books, I will post letters from the sequels here on a twice-weekly basis.
The second and third sequels are not currently available on Project Gutenberg but are, as far as I can determine, out of copyright, so I will be attempting to have them added through Distributed Proofreaders, a crowd-sourcing page for Project Gutenberg content. I’ll also be posting updates on that journey here and, if successful, will add those letters to the bi-weekly queue.
Teasers and background content for future Literary Letters books, as I prepare them for posting.
Potentially Q&As and fan content? if there’s enough interest.
