Studying the Branches of Hypertext Fiction.
Young, Jeffrey R.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n6 pA26-A27 Oct 2 1998
At least 50 colleges offer courses on hypertext fiction, a genre in which readers click on key words to follow various narrative threads according to individual interests and instincts, rather than following a single, predetermined sequence of passages. Supporters are surprised at how slowly the genre has caught on; critics see signs of trendy postmodern theory and literary fragmentation. (MSE)
