This panel revisits pre-web hypertext literature in an effort to re-open a discussion about canon. While the presenters recall works that have achieved recognition and status––Michael Joyce’s ​afternoon: a story​, Shelley Jackson’s ​Patchwork Girl​, Deena Larsen’s ​Marble Springs​, Stuart Moulthrop’s ​Victory Garden​, and Judy Malloy’s ​its name was Penelope​––its primary focus is to highlight other works from the same period that are less referenced but likewise deserving of study and recognition.
