Aaron Dietz That was the graphic designer and I, with the publisher's blessing. Page numbers interrupted the verisimilitude of the internal documents, plus we wanted people to say "I'm on Level VII" or "I'm on Document D" or so on, which is more meaningful than the page number.

Of course...we didn't have the resources to work with Goodreads on a progress indicator plug-in for their website. Heh....

Gus Sanchez I figured as much. It really wouldn't make sense to include page numbers, since the objective of this novel is to not feel like a novel whatsoever.


Aaron Dietz Exactly right. I was a little worried that the various agencies of corporate bookdom would basically throw our book out because of the lack of page numbers, but...so far we've gotten away with it. Maybe they just think we're a children's book.
