Off-Site Reviews

Electronic Literature Collection
Michael Joyce, the author of the first hypertext fiction, afternoon, a story, authored this, his first web hypertext, in 1996. Twelve Blue is an HTML hypertext that makes use of frames and image-maps. Although simple from a technical standpoint, the work tells a complex and enigmatic story of memory, desire, lust, truth, and consequences.

A Response to Twelve Blue by Michael Joyce
Michael Joyce is well known as a theorist, teacher, and creator of hypertext fiction. His most recent composition, authored in StorySpace for presentation on the World Wide Web, may be found at Twelve Blue thus demonstrates the strengths (but also some of the limitations) of StorySpace as an authoring environment for the Web. Its great evocative power also shows off the craft of Joyce as a creative writer.
