    Hey guys!

    So I just took the plunge and bought myself an iPad. Very excited to get it in the post! I've started to look at some of the apps I might download.

    I was just wondering if anyone has come across any good interactive ebooks or interactive fiction? I realise there are a lot of children's story books with interactive elements, but are there any good interactive novels or even choose your own adventure type things? It would be nice to find something that uses the iPad in slightly more interesting ways than just regurgitating a book in the way that iBooks do.

    On my iPhone I downloaded some of the "Choice of" apps (e.g. Choice of the Vampire) which are sort of like this. I'm not a big fan of reading a lot on a small screen though, and the user experience wasn't brilliant.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Solution: webback!

    Hello there!

    So glad to find your post, I think that I may have something to interest you. I'm currently helping to promote a book called: "Slabscape: Reset". We are calling it a webback.

    A webback is a work of fiction that is published in printed and eBook formats with the addenda, glossaries, back-stories and tangentially linked fiction available online.

    The epub is embedded with links to the database that provides all sorts of information and back story to the novel.

    You can buy the epub here: and since I would love for you to read it and get excited about what we are trying to do if you enter the discount code: "book4buck" you'll get it for only a dollar :)

    If you like you can check out: which has loads of cool stuff and even a place to write fan fiction.
