joesluck.jpgTomorrow we will unveil the first edition of our World’s Longest Literary Remix Contest eBook–an entire novel re-written by GalleyCat Reviews readers. Last month, a crew of brave readers rewrote one page of Horatio Alger‘s Joe’s Luck: Always Wide Awake (cover pictured) for fun and prizes.

To help you get prepared, check out author David Rapp’s metafictional remix of one Alger page–read his innovative entry below. While the eBook will be unveiled tomorrow, we will announce the winners of the remix contest next week. In case you have forgotten, our prizes include:

1-Scribd.com and Blurb.com are donating 10 printed copies of the completely remixed novel, using the company’s new print-on-demand service.
