|Title:||The fan-networked capital of self-published web serials: A comparison of Worm and Nunslinger||Contributor(s):||Paquet, Lili (author)||Publication Date:||2019-04||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/27245||Open Access Link:||http://www.textjournal.com.au/april19/paquet.htm||Abstract:||This article evaluates two web serials: novels published in serialised instalments through digital mediums. John C McCrae’s Worm (2011-2013) was self-published online in the style of a blog, and Stark Holborn’s Nunslinger (2014) was published by Hodder & Stoughton as serialised e-books. This article refers to debates on the publishing industry (Young 2007; Thompson 2012), self-publishing (Young 2014; Tushnet 2017) and digital publishing (Colbjørnsen 2014; Mustafa & Adnan 2017), and applies these to a comparative study of Worm and Nunslinger in order to demonstrate how web serials can engage online fan networks that refashion the forms of capital accessed by established publishing houses. This article concludes that web serials such as McCrae’s work as ‘slow’ media that gain traction over a period of years using word-of-mouth and crowdsourcing through online fan networks.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Text: Journal of Writing and Writing Courses, 23(1), p. 1-8||Publisher:||Australian Association of Writing Programs||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1327-9556||Field of Research (FOR):||200599 Literary Studies not elsewhere classified
