From his original rec.arts.int-fiction post:

The King of Shreds and Patches is a novel-length work of interactive fiction. In it you will explore an historically accurate recreation of Elizabethan London, circa 1603, interact with some fascinating characters both historical and fictional, and (if you are clever and lucky) thwart an occult conspiracy that threatens to bring down the entire city – or worse.

To play the game, you will need a Glulx interpreter which you can obtain from here. For Mac OS and Linux users, Jimmy has suggestions on the game’s download page as to what can be used to play the game as well.

Jimmy also recently provided his thoughts on interactive fiction’s beginnings and what he sees as its future, which you can read here.
