Rackham & Crane by Nathan Bruinooge and Phil Chase

A correspondence 

This is a serial correspondence between two fictional characters, Benjamin Rackham and Eliot Crane. Their letters are written by Phil and Nate, respectively, who build the narrative by responding to each other’s letters, but do not otherwise communicate or coordinate concerning the plot.

In the story so far, a supernatural disaster has befallen Albion (a fictional England), and our heroes are on different courses navigating the aftermath, trying to understand the changes in both their world and themselves.

Note: Rackham & Crane contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

An ongoing series, with new episodes weekly

If Verne and Wells wrote a round robin…

Jul 25, 2015: The premise of the serial is one of letters, correspondence, between two characters, each written by a different person, with no other communication between the two. It’s like a giant game of yes, and.

And it works. The pair of authors have a great chemistry going, they seem to know well when to add detail and when to leave something alone for the other to develop. They are investigating a mystery that slowly unfolds for us as they chatter about things [more . . .]

Improvisatory Letters

By Billy Higgins Peery, author of A Bad Idea

Jul 11, 2015: This is a fun serial. Well, I suppose that only works if your idea of fun is two Britishmen trying to understand the apocalyptic hellscape that their world has become. Usually that wouldn’t be my kind of story, but I’ve got to say, this pulled me in.

The biggest draw for me was actually the format. Whereas epistolary novels can often feel a little played out, his one does something interesting: each of the two characters gets written by a different [more . . .]
