Catching up with Loose-Fish

Just a hair over a year ago, then-Metblogs author Jay Bushman posted a piece about his experimental storytelling adventures, the Loose-Fish project. Since that time, Bushman has completed his twitter tale The Good Captain, a retelling of Melville’s “Benito Cereno,” and published a bound hardcopy version as well. He is currently at work on the Spoon River Metblog and has, this past month, experienced at least a morsel of his promised fifteen minutes fame when he garnered the attention of no less than The Christian Science Monitor. Yay Jay. (I can’t wait for Loose-Fish’s reimagining of Moby Dick, personally.)
