Claudio Pires Franco's work is based on the adaptation of a source work:
Duncan Pile's *Nature Mage*. The project aims to develop the book from
e-book to a fan-produced enhanced digital book. Through this practice-based
research, Franco investigates the definitions and classification of the e
and i forms of the book and adaptation in new media; the role of the author
in creative collaboration with readers through online forums; the extension
of the story world through creative collaboration and reader participation
while respecting and safeguarding creative properties. One remove from the
traditional book, David Miller's *Sherwood Rise*, research the user
