Kelley, Robert T. "A Maze of Twisty Little Passages, All Alike: Aesthetics and Teleology in Interactive Computer Fictional Environments." SFS #59 = Volume 20, Part 1 = March 1993: 52-68. Abstract on WWW at [1].

See for information on Virtual Reality, AI vs. "IA" ("'intelligence amplification'" [54]), and interactive-fiction games. Concludes that the "various interactive forms" RTK discusses point toward "a whole new branch of narrative" that "abandons the fixity of the written text in what has been called a post-Gutenberg revolution." Agrees with D. Haraway's "A Manifesto for Cyborgs" (q.v. this Category) and advises us "that we are already cyborgs, already facing integration into technological narrative" (64).
