Alternate reality reading

I’ve just finished reading Mr Toppit, by Charles Elton. The plot centres around the family of an author, who wrote a set of children’s books in the 1980s (The Hayseed Chronicles). While this a pretty good holiday-reading-type novel, what really impressed me is the online backstory that they have created through a blog about the original books, flickr photostream, and real-life artifacts.
