"Weaving between theoretical speculations, reports of actual classroom usage, polemical addresses, and a rich web of allusions, Of Two Minds strongly makes the case that hypertext creates a topography of textuality that requires new modes of thinking about texts" -- N. Katherine Hayles, UCLA

Michael Joyce's long-awaited book is filled with insight and wonder, marking a turning-point in our understanding and our appreciation of hypertext. These essays, what Joyce calls "theoretical narratives," explore the essence of hypertext in new and unexpected ways, combining literary theory and computer science to transform our understanding of the future of writing, in and beyond the late age of print. Absolutely essential reading.

Michael Joyce is the author of afternoon, a story, the classic (and best-selling) hypertext fiction that remains "the most widely read, quoted, and critiqued of all hypertext narratives" (New York Times Book Review), and of Twilight: a Symphony.Joyce was one of the original designers of the Storyspace hypertext writing environment. He is currently Professor of English and The Library at Vassar College.
