Geoff Ryman – 253 ( 1998)



An avant guarde story describing the 7 ½ minutes Tube journey of 253 characters. Each carriage section has an incident that ripples through the characters thoughts and behaviour revealing connections ended and built on by the crash.  Mock adverts and author red-herring comments are between sections reflecting the interactive version.
