The first chapter of A [[Non]] Guardian Age, a web-based remix by Mez Breeze is now available. This remix takes as its source material The Guardian, a novel by Anna Maria Bunn from 1838. A gothic romance and comedy of manners (seriously), The Guardian is the first Australian novel published on the mainland. Originally published anonymously it was subsequently attributed as the only published work by Bunn.
The first chapter is an assumed dialogue between author/remixer and reader, presuming your reaction and preparing you for what's to come.
Also, there's sounds.
