Our latest serial, Geek Actually, has been running since June 7th and today is the final episode of season 1. We'll miss you Rebel Scum...
As you know, we love serial fiction. Really love it. A lot. I mean, helping writers build gripping, meaningful serials is what we do every day. But we're also obsessed with audio. And you are too -- audio listening on Serial Box increased more than 150% this summer.

The world is rarely fair. This episode let me imagine how I would make it so. The virgin hero was just the icing on the cake.
This is the 5th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Mur Lafferty.
