Are there any examples of novels that are "open source"?
Anytime I run a search of open source novels, I keep getting results for open source writing software. That's not what I'm after.
What I mean is, much like open source software, an author might come up with a novel and release it on a site like Github, other authors can contribute by adding, removing, and changing whatever they want. Only when the group decides that the novel is written the way to want, it gets released for free.
Even afterwards, readers, can fork it, and come up with there own endings if the original wasn't satisfying.
Obviously, it's a lot of work, with no pay, and there is no guarantee the novel will be successful, unless you spend time and effort to promote the work, and even then, it's still risky.
I'm aware this link talks about open source publishing, but that's for peer reviews, I'm talking about a complete open source novel.
