Ludic Writing: Lady of the West

Have you heard about Ludic Writing? It’s a new series I started up on Entropy last fall, using gameplay as an engine to drive fiction. The newest work generated from this grand experiment is “Lady of the West,” inspired by a play of Tim Fowers’ original deckbuilding word game, Paperback. When the mayor of lawless Narrow Gulch, Wyoming, is shot dead, it’s business as usual…until a mysterious stranger rides into town and announces her inclination to stay awhile. Read up on Paperback in the accompanying Session Report, then check out the story here:
