Liveblogging THE PEOPLE OF THE ABYSS (no tickets necessary)

(Go straight to The People of the Abyss LiveBlog Part 1)

Beginning July 4, in preparation for the August release from Word Horde of my third Jack the Ripper victims novel, A BRUTAL CHILL IN AUGUST, I’ll be liveblogging my reading of Jack London’s THE PEOPLE OF THE ABYSS. The book is a piece of investigative journalism in which the author wrote of his experience living in the guise of an impoverished person in the East End of the city of London in 1902, fourteen years after Jack the Ripper terrorized the area.

Unlike the liveblogging that occurs with a television or sports event, my posts will not come every few minutes, but instead every couple of days—Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays—for 9 weeks. The blogging will consist of my impressions of the tale as I proceed in my reading, a post for each of the 27 chapters. They will appear on my blog, on the Word Horde site, and I’ll provide links on my Facebook page, where I’ll also be able to carry on conversations with those interested in following the liveblogging of the book.

This is Historical Terror: Horror that Happened in the words of one who lived it.

If you would like to read along with me, get a copy of Jack London’s THE PEOPLE OF THE ABYSS, then join the conversation on Facebook starting July 4. You can buy a paperback or get a free ebook edition. Here’s a link for a free ebook copy, available in various formats including Kindle and Epub, from Project Gutenburg: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1688
