Tracing the Growth of a New Literature, by
Other Suggested Readings
Articles on hypertext fiction currently tend to be either very
elementary pieces for general audience publications (for instance,
explaining the concept of hypertext) or very academic pieces directed
toward a professional audience. I've tried to start in the middle of
these two, assuming a literate readership who knows what hypertext
fiction is, but certainly not aiming for an audience of theorists. The
articles listed below are by no means more elementary than mine, but
rather provide a broader description of just what constitutes hypertext
fiction and how some of these authors found their ways into the field.
Readers who want something more grounded in critical theory could begin
by examining the Criticism and
Theory section of Hyperizons and explore from there.
