Alice in Deadland is an example of what online self publishing can do when it goes tragically wrong: you get an original and kind of interesting story idea, whip up a text that's in serious need of editing, and just whip it up on the net. I did my best to try and read the novel, but had to give up pretty soon: the text is very repetitive, there's tons of horribly bad exposition and... uh, generally, it's something that should've been picked up by a publisher and handed to an editor who could see the interesting idea and spent an year whipping the text to shape.
