THE NEDDIAD will be published by Houghton Mifflin in April, 2007. Lucky web-readers will have a chance to partake in a death-defying feat of literary razzle-dazzle: the online serialization of the complete text of THE NEDDIAD, unedited and unchanged from the day it left the hands of its creator. Chapter One is now online, and, beginning August 1st, 2006, one new chapter will be posted every Tuesday.
