Dennis Cooper's New Novel is Written in Animated GIF
Dennis Cooper, author of the George Miles cycle and numerous other mind-bending works, has broken the cool people's internet. He has written a novel composed entirely of animated GIFs. Zac's Haunted House is available for free download and can be viewed online at Kiddiepunk.com. It is weird and unsettling and highly imaginative. But don't take my word for it. Here's what dennis-cooper.net had to say:
Dennis Cooper’s tenth novel bears all of the earmarks of his legendary and controversial work — intricate formal and stylistic play, disturbing content, an exploration of the borderline between fantasy and reality, concern for the emotions and dilemmas of youth, etc. — but it is both something unique in his body of writing and possibly something of a world’s first in the novel genre itself... "Zac’s Haunted House" is as fun and eerie to explore as its namesake attraction, and, the more closely one searches and decodes its carefully detailed sequences and construction, a deep and fraught fiction puzzle.
Go check it out and let us know what you think. Genius? Or tedium?
