early web hypertext fiction
I want to write a paragraph about electronic literature in the early days of the web. Michael Shumate’s Hyperizons is a good place to start, given it hasn’t been updated since July 97, but even so it lists over 60 hypertext fictions. What was there before 1995? Do you remember?
I suspect I can write the paper perfectly well without these details but of course now I want to know.
And damn it, I was there, surfing the web in 1993 and 1994, wandering through the Virtual Library’s literature/hypertext section. I should remember. But I don’t, and the Electronic Literature Directory won’t let me search by year.
- Michael Shumate’s short article about new developments in web hyperfiction in 1996
- Prentiss Riddle’s Search for Some Hypertext Fiction, 1995
- Carolyn Guyer’s list of hypertext fiction, with an accompanying article in Feed Magazine. 1995.
