Don’t Look Behind You

April 1, 2011

I read an interesting little story today, called “Don’t Look Behind You” by Fredric Brown, one of the most enduring and beloved of America’s pulp writers. It’s a mystery story in which the reader is the victim. I don’t want to give anything away, but it uses the format in which it originally appeared to make the conceit work. Very fun, and I’d say it’s a precursor to the modern alternate reality game, which uses the myriad of information resources available to craft a compelling story that immerses the reader.
