Editorial Reviews


Anyone interested in the use of technology for artistic and cultural purposes should crack open Twisty Little Passages.—Book Bytes


Nick Montfort's excellent book puts interactive fiction into its literary context for the first time. Just as groundbreaking studies of romance and the gothic novel have broadened our idea of literary fiction, so Montfort makes a powerful case for recognition of this extraordinary new form of art: of the poetry that must live within the machine. Newcomers will find all that they need here, while those who are already aficionados will be constantly informed and surprised.

Graham Nelson, St. Anne's College, Oxford University, author and critic of interactive fiction
