"Forward 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, Washington Post Book World

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.

Cathy Marshall is a principal engineer at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. She has led a series of projects investigating analytical work practices and collaborative hypertext, including two system development projects, Aquanet (named after the hairspray) and VIKI.

Judy Malloy has been making experimental books since 1975. Her early works used photos, text, and drawings on 3x5 cards, in file drawers, or in electromechanical books read by pushing buttons. Her classic hyperfiction, its name was Penelope is also published by Eastgate. She has a B.A. in English and Art from Middlebury College.

Where To?, Stuart Moulthrop's fascinating discussion of Forward Anywhere, originally appeared in Convergence and is now reprinted here.
