Michael Joyce

Michael Joyce is perhaps best known as the originator of an art form. The New York Times called his afternoon "the granddaddy of hypertext fictions," while the Toronto Globe and Mail said that it "is to the hypertext interactive novel what the Gutenberg Bible is to publishing." Two long hyperfictions, Twilight, A Symphony, on CD-ROM, and Twelve Blue, on the World Wide Web, were both published in 1996 by Eastgate. Three shorter hyperfictions include WOE, Lucy's Sister, and Lasting Image. An earlier print novel, The War Outside Ireland, won the Great Lakes New Writers Award in 1983. He also has published two collections of essays— Othermindedness: the emergence of network culture (2000) and Of Two Minds: Hypertext Pedagogy and Poetics (1995). He is currently associate professor of English and director of the Center for Electronic Learning and Teaching at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY. [extracted from 2000 brochure]
