Penguin Books continues to court cool and new audiences by latching onto the nascent alternate reality game movement in its “We Tell Stories” campaign.

Utilizing the services of U.K. developers SixtoStart, Penguin launched an effort that solicits six different authors to write contemporary re-imaginings of specific classics which SixtoStart is then presenting in different interactive ways online individually and weekly for six weeks.

This week's inclusion, Toby Litt's haunted house-themed Slice, includes Twitter and blog usage to sort out the story while last week's tale, Charles Cummings 21 Steps, used a Google Maps journey to follow its protagonist in a Hitchcock-styled tale.
