Writing on the Edge

According to the description of WOE in the New Media Reader, where it was republished on a CD inserted into the book, it was "a hypertext that was a radical departure for author Michael Joyce from his modernist hypertext classic afternoon: a story. "WOE" combines narrative material with metafictional passages, typographic experiments, notes to and about hypertext theorists, and even images; it creates a heterogeneous browsing experience of the sort familiar to today's Web readers (or fans of Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves)." -- From ELMCIP
