"A well-written, pedagogical reflection on the historical, theoretical, and practical position of hypertexts as a new medium of communication. The advanced reader will enjoy the limpid presentation of what we now understand about hypertext; the reader new to the field will have a very readable introduction to what makes it exciting." William Winder, co-editor of Computing in the Humanities Working Papers "A wonderful series of short essays on the nature of text as it has been affected by the digital revolution. Vandendorpe is a careful and intelligent observer of a profound shift in textual behavior." William Barker, president, University of King's College, and professor of English, Dalhousie University, Halifax
