Todd Brendan Fahey made the Digital Leap at the close of 1994. Mired to innumerable rejections of his psychedelic thriller Wisdom's Maw: The Acid Novel (Far Gone Books, 1996), pal Gerard Martin offered to place portions of the unpublished manuscript on something called "the Web."
"Sure," Fahey said. "Whatever."
The struggling novelist had played around on GEnie, mostly to gain access to the Grateful Dead tape-trading community, but The Internet remained an enigma. So, when on a cold Louisiana winter evening, in the Educational Technology Resource lab at University of Louisiana-Lafayette, he was shown Levi Asher's Literary Kicks beat pages, the experience, for Fahey, was as profound as his first acid trip, bea ... read more

Wrote my first novel-length manuscript (you don't want to see it) that same year, and began my first novel of any worth my senior year of high school, and finished it in my freshman year of college.
