Disasters strike!

Twenty-three small disasters is live at ideomancer!

I'm really, really eager to know what people think of this experiment. The stories link to each other, and there should be a hanging-together-ness if you read the whole thing.

Thanks again to my excellent collaborators Chris, Greg, Kiini, Meghan, Tim, and Elad.

Comment!

Ok, I have read them all now. I liked many of them, some more than others, I enjoyed clicking from one story to another. Some of them, though, seem more connected than others. Some I didn't understand. Some, I'm still trying to figure out what the disaster was, and read them again thinking, what am I missing here?

It's fun though.
Do it again.
I feel like a teletubby. "Nochmals! Nochmals!"

Interesting point -- they don't necessarily actually all have a disaster. It perhaps bears mentioning that the title was the last thing we came up with. We really were just writing interconnected stories about anything, and noticed a theme of disaster running through many of the stories, and "23 small disasters" seemed amusingly self-deprecating. But perhaps it's more confusing...
