as your confession draws me near

Because we have the best fans anywhere, the Shadow Unit community has put together a master chronology for folks who want to catch up on the series from the beginning and understand what the hell is going on. (Apparently, they're also working on a guide to the character livejournals, as a certain amount of narrative happens over there, as well.)

So if you wanted to get involved, but you were feeling a little at a loss, this would be a great time. Especially since the second episode of the second season, Leah Bobet's "Sugar," debuts on Sunday.

For those of you who haven't yet heard about the whole Shadow Unit thing, it's an interactive online hyperfiction environment, of sorts. Or, more clearly, it's a long, collaborative, ongoing narrative, currently written by a cast of award-nominated-and-winning SFF authors including me, coffeeem, truepenny, leahbobet, stillsostrange, and blackholly, licensed under creative commons, with an active fan community and a whole lot of fun.

It concerns the adventures of a group of unrealisticly sexy FBI agents as they attempt to hunt down a malignant force of unknown origin that grants supernatural powers--and supernatural malevolence--to certain individuals (and of course, some of those agents have been touched by this force as well). The narrative includes long stories, vignettes, character journals, art, and a whole lot of recipes.

Currently, it comprises about three novels worth of stuff.

And it's free! It's shareware, in fact: you have access to every bit of the content for the low, low price of nothing, and only throw us money if you think we've earned it.

It's sort of like Public Radio, only (sadly) without Carl Kasell.
