Stuart Moulthrop

Stuart Moulthrop is the author of Victory Garden.

He was born at the statistical peak of the baby boom in Baltimore, Maryland, where he worked as a crab steamer and part-time bureaucrat, and where, after 20 years of living in other places, he has finally gone to ground. In 1975 he read Gravity's Rainbow and became an English major. Cause and effect? In the mid-eighties he learned about hypermedia, which further changed his life. Now he makes hypertexts and teaches design for electronic environments in the Institute for Language, Technology, and Communications Design at the University of Baltimore. With Michael Joyce, Nancy Kaplan, and John McDaid, he is co-founder of the TINAC electronic arts collective. He is also a partner in the Baltimore Interactive Group, an Internet design firm.

Moulthrop has written several non-fiction hypertexts and one other electronic fiction, "Dreamtime" (1992). He has published essays about hypertext and contemporary culture in journals like Postmodern Culture, Mosaic, and Writing on the Edge.

Moulthrop stands in the first rank of hypertext critics. His discussion of Malloy and Marshall's Forward Anywhere is fascinating.
