Inspired by the Japanese phenomenon of cellphone novels, Mary Robinette Kowal has started a text message story: "The Case of the White Phoenix Feather".
Hey, the first line already has ninjas in it, so its gotta be good. Plus, MRK is awesome.

The first four sentences of the story are available via the above link. To get more of the story, whenever MRK writes it, you'll have to contact her with your cell number and future installments will show up like magic on your cell phone. Just like magic.
