Amazon has released a new episode of a Kurt Vonnegut Kindle Serial called, “Between Timid and Timbuktu.” It is about a recently-widowed artist who tries to travel back in time to reconnect with his deceased wife.
The story is the first episode in a serial novel called Sucker’s Portfolio: A Collection of Previously Unpublished Writing, which features seven previously unpublished works by Vonnegut. Every week, Amazon will publish a new episode and deliver the new content to a customer’s Kindle. Readers will get an email when a new episode is available. The final episode of Sucker’s Portfolio will publish on January 2, 2013.
Here is more about Kindle Serials from Amazon: “Kindle Serials are stories published in episodes. When you buy a Kindle Serial, you will receive all existing episodes on your Kindle immediately, followed by future episodes as they are published at no additional cost. Enjoy reading as the author creates the story, and discuss episodes with other readers in the Kindle forums.”
