Q I would like to study interactive fiction. Any pointers?

A Andrew Gibson (Royal Holloway) has written fairly recently on this subject. You might want to have a look at "Interactive fiction and narrative space" in Beyond the Book: Theory, Culture, and the Politics of Cyberspace. Ed. Warren Chernaik, Marilyn Deegan, andAndrew Gibson. Office for Humanities Publications 7. Oxford 1996: 79-91. His notes point towards further reading.

The book is available from the Office for Humanities Communication at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/humanities/cch/ohc/index.html for £7.50 + £1.00 P&P. You may also be able to get it on interlibrary loan. Andrew Gibson himself can be contacted at A.Gibson@rhbnc.ac.uk

A search on the Internet using AltaVista comes up with numerous sites. A bibliography at http://jefferson.village.virginia.edu/elab/hfl0268.html might be of interest to you. See also http://www.eastgate.com/Bibliography.html and the products of Eastgate Systems. Stuart Moulthrop's homepage is also worth visiting (http://raven.ubalt.edu/staff/moulthrop/ and also http://www.ubalt.edu/www/ygcla/sam/ESSAYS/ESSAYS.HTML) together with the web page of his faculty (http://raven.ubalt.edu/departments/ComDesign/comDesign_home.html).
