When text goes digital it changes forever. It’s no longer fixed unalterably on the page. Readers can play with it, change it, comment on it, even rewrite it if they so wish. Interactive digital technology dissolves the barrier between reader and author; it challenges ideas of finality of version and of authorship. What do these changes mean for the novel? Can it function in the digital arena? By democratizing and making public the publishing and writing processes, such technologies and platforms challenge the norms surrounding the author reader dynamic and the role of the individual in reading and writing established by print.
