The Instant Books Book Longlist

I’ve started whittling things down for my planned Instant Books Book. The goal is to take the best 30 of the first 100 instant books and make a real tidy bound and printed version of the site for you to hold and grasp and sweat all over. I’m getting help from an amazing designer, Katrina Wiedner, who I collaborated on this project with.

As the writer of these things, I’ve got an idea of what is good and what is not. But as the writer of these things I have a certain attachment to certain stories for sentimental and self-congratulatory reasons. This is why I could use a hand in editing and selecting.

If you’ve read anything on this site that you liked a lot or hated a fart-load please let me know. This will help me with considering what should go in. Really. I’d love feedback and criticism.Really.

Here, so far, are what I consider to be the best 38.
