|dc.description.abstract||Despite the shift in medial ecology represented by the dominance of digital online media, popular understanding of the book, and especially the novel, remains to a great extent firmly grounded in a sense of unity and finality that had largely been established by the end of the nineteenth century. By attempting to reconstruct a bibliographic history of the contemporary popular novel, I will examine the variety of relationships that exist between the novel’s unified form as printed book and its fragmented online presence. I will examine this question through a case study of Cory Doctorow’s 2009 science fiction novel Makers. I pay particular attention to the ways in which the novel, variously remediated in digital space, navigates a tension between the closed finality and unity of the traditional book and the open, collaborative environment engendered by the web.|
