My favorite Geoff Ryman novel is 20 years old. I must admit I read it in order on bound pieces of paper.

Thanx to andrewducker

I think on the web it's a sort of interesting exercise, whereas on paper (or, i suppose, if one read it on the web in strictly linear form) it's amazing because given such stringent limitations of form he still manages to generate narrative tension and story movement by what information about whom is revealed when, and so on.

Plus it has the footnote about the ghost of William Blake, which justifies the whole thing in and of itself.

So it's 240 months old, eh? Make a note to read it again next February.
