Editorial Reviews

Review

Academics have been pulling their hair out about Twitter destroying our literacy. At last, with Blechman's sequel to Executive Severance and The Golden Parachute, we have confirmation -- Only kidding! 

In actual fact, I Tweet, Therefore I Am does just the opposite, refuting that drop-dead proposition with a feast of wit, not Twit, which is also good insofar as Karl Popper didn't think that anything could ever be confirmed, anyway.  

I Tweet, Therefore I Am 's notonly a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards; meditations on 'dreeting' or 'tweaming' which happens when sleeptweeting; and not just Farley but Stuart Granger (stranger than true but true). And there are lots of memorable music references, too, including 'Torn BetweenTwo Lovers,' one of my all-time favorite lame songs.   But there's nothing lame about I Tweet, Therefore I Am.  Read and enjoy, and do keep in mind its injunction that 'though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply'".

Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates, Loose Ends, and Ian's Ions and Eons.
-----------------------------
The genre of Twitstery, established by Robert Blechman in his Executive Severance and The Golden Parachute, turns to Phantwitsmagoria in a sequel, I Tweet, Therefore I Am. A detective story written in tweets takes readers into a crazy voyage to a mystic Caribbean island, somewhat reminiscent of H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau" with an odd campus on it. This is most likely the only detective novel in the world, literally (oh, yes, twitterally) stuffed with Marshall McLuhan quotes. Adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the story full of irony and witty puns.

From the Author
What is a Twitstery?
Twitstery
noun | Twit-ster-y | twit-st(ə-)rē
plural TheTwitstery Twilogy
1.  A mystery written realtime in Twitter, 140 characters at a time
2.  A cornucopia of puns,word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever characterconditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old "rules" ofstorytelling.
3.  A piece of fictiondealing usually with the solution of a mysterious crime, or random thoughts or political outbursts or justnonsense elevated by publication in social media
4.  Something not understood or beyond understanding unlessconsumed in small bites
5.  Profound, inexplicable, orsecretive quality or character
After a 30 year career as an information technology executive and consultant, author Robert K. Blechman turned his attention to the creative possibilities of social media. Starting on May 6, 2009, Blechman conducted a literary experiment: Was it possible to maintain a narrative structure and attract a reading public in Twitter, 140 characters at a time? 

Posting a new Executive Severance "tweet" twice a day, every day, never missing a deadline, Blechman completed his "Twitstery" or twitter mystery in 15 months. The 140 character limit of Twitter required intensive wordsmithing, creative editing, the omission of some punctuation and a lot of counting. To succeed he adopted the narrative strategies of Al Capp (creator of L'il Abner), Chester Gould (creator of Dick Tracy) as well as Raymond Chandler, Robert B. Parker and Mickey Spillane. 

Executive Severance, Book 1 of the Twitstery Twilogy, won the 2012 Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work from the Media Ecology Association and became the nation's best-selling Twitter-composed mystery. 

To follow that success, Blechman returned to the keyboard and over the next three years tweeted Books 2 and 3 of The Twitstery Twilogy. The Golden Parachute, Book 2, was released in August, 2016 as a Kindle eBook. Book 3, I Tweet, Therefore I Am Is the final book of the series.
