Now, in Hypertext 2.0, Landow shifts the focus from Intermedia to Microcosm, Storyspace, and the World Wide Web. He offers new, specific information about kinds of hypertext, different modes of linking, attitudes toward technology, and the proliferation of pornography and gambling on the Internet. He also comments extensively on the rhetoric and stylistics of writing in and with hypermedia. For critics, students, artists, and writers, this new edition will be an invaluable resource.
