So the mystery project that Bad Robot Productions teased us with a few weeks ago is finally revealed, and it’s a book.

S., apparently, is about the relationship between a grad student named Eric and a college senior named Jennifer. They trade notes in the margins of a (fictional) 1949 novel by a mysterious author named V.M. Straka. S. contains the novel within the novel; copious handwritten notes between Jennifer and Eric and dozens of pieces of ephemera between the pages like newspaper clippings and a napkin with a map drawn on it. (The book will come shrink-wrapped so none of this extra material falls out.)

This sounds like an interesting project, though I’m not sure I’ll be picking up a physical copy of this book, even with the included bits and pieces.

    I am ordering this now from Amazon. I’m sold; really interesting that the promo states that “The Book is only the beginning” Well I know I want to find out.

    That is a lot of production work just for a book…
