Mifiction introduces Mooks – interactive fiction

From the announcement:

Interactive fiction books are now available on mobile phones as new technology transforms the traditional novel into a contemporary format. Mobile books or ‘moooks’ are designed for instant viewing across a wide range of mobile networks worldwide, with first service availability in the UK.

...

Ten brand new ‘moooks’ have been written especially for the launch of the mifiction product, including the recent mifiction competition winner, Will Dunn’s interactive novel, ‘Dead Flowers’. Will Dunn, freelance journalist and writer, tells us why interactive fiction is important for the future of storytelling.

I did read "Choose your own Adventures" as a  kid, so I'm familiar with the concept. But I'm not all that impressed with the writing. I wish Mifiction had adapted some of the existing IF (like Zork).

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
