come from very strong engagement." "Forward Anywhere brilliantly demonstrates 
the hypertexts -are structured in more dimensions than the line." Prof.

Prof. Janet Murray (author of Hamlet On The Holodeck) has written about
the _Victory Garden_ as, "..indispensible. No one has taken on the hard
questions about hypertext and fiction or played so intransigently with 
the myriad possibilities.." _Victory Garden_ was created using Storyspace.

exhibition, which includes work from hundreds of mail artists and

"Forward Anywhere demonstrates a remarkable commitment to exploration 
and experiment, a futurity that moves through the past but is not 
doomed to repetition. This is a work that moves and moves with us, an 
*open* work in the best sense." -- Stuart Moulthrop, _Convergence: 
The Journal of Research into New Media Technologies_

literary technology of our century."

Dust Or Magic: Secrets Of Successful Multimedia Design

In this new volume, Bob Hughes offers a conceptual framework and 
plenty of practical advice for creatively tackling projects in 
multimedia design.  Drawing on his extensive and varied experience in 
multimedia development, Hughes demonstrates the importance of 
emotions, play, gesture, and closely-coupled media in producing 
intense, immersive multimedia.

Of particular interest are Hughes' case studies and profiles; these 
make a wonderfully candid introduction to multimedia classics and to 
their creators.  Hughes' analyses, examples, and historical insights, 
moreover, are all much wider ranging than the title suggests.

Aleen Stein, CEO of and co-founder of The Voyager Company, 
called _Dust or Magic_ "incredibly engrossing. I expected to skim 
through it, and found myself reading it avidly, putting aside all the 
other work I should have been doing, in favor of consuming it. Very 
readable, it's as much of a page-turner as most fiction I'm reading. 
It has unique insight into the creative process."

Bob Hughes worked in media from medieval manuscripts to television 
ads before discovering the computer in 1989. Since becoming hooked, 
he has developed CD-ROMs, learning games, kiosk systems, Web sites -- 
and deep sympathy for everyone who strives to do "good stuff," 
whatever the medium.

Ordering with Eastgate is quick and easy.
