Anywhere demonstrates a remarkable commitment to exploration and
experiment, a futurity that moves through the past but is not doomed to
repetition. This is a work that moves and moves with us, an "open" work in the
best sense." -- Stuart Moulthrop, Convergence: The Journal of Research into
New Media Technologies

"Nicely evocative ... the
effect is remarkably close to the subjective quirkiness of memory, of past
moments floating unpredictably to the surface." -- Richard Grant,

In 1993, Xerox PARC began a new program to bring scientists and artists together. But when writer and artist Judy Malloy, "surrounded by the aura of blood and frozen pea juice," arrived to meet Cathy Marshall, "a collaboration seemed unlikely."
From that inauspicious meeting came an exchange of electronic mail replete with the ideas and stories that gave rise to this powerful and daring collaborative work. Forward Anywhere explores the outrageous and mundane realities that reach across two lives to make these narrators who they are. This funny, touching work is the first published collaboration by these major figures in hypertext writing and research.
Forward Anywhere requires no additional software. Available for Macintosh, models Classic and newer, and Windows 95/98/NT.
Where To?, Stuart Moulthrop's fascinating discussion of Forward Anywhere, originally appeared in Convergence and is now reprinted here.
