The best hypertexts -- like the highlights of the Eastgate catalog, Michael Joyce's pioneering 1987 "afternoon," Stuart Moulthrop's "Victory Garden" and Shelley Jackson's "Patchwork Girl" -- share an estimable gravity, an obsessive attention to detail and a fascination with the formal possibilities of digital narrative. -- Scott Rosenberg, Salon
