J. Yellowlees Douglas examines how interactive fiction works, looking closely at afternoon, Victory Garden, and other seminal hypertexts. Douglas also takes a careful look at the state of hypertext criticism today, and suggests how the future development of interactive narratives relate to the New Realism.

A long-awaited and important book from one of the world's leading hypertext critics.

"A classic of hypertext theory and criticism" -Jay David Bolter
