Internet Fictions

Ingrid Hotz-Davis, Sirpa Leppänen and Anton Kirchhofer have just published a collection of essays on the various aspects of fictions online with the classy and straighforward title: Internet Fictions.

I am very happy about the scope of the essays, ranging from investigations of build-it-yourself toys to classical hypertext.  And most of the essays focus on case studies! This is an analytical focus much needed in a time of all kinds of crazy assumptions about the Internet and its emancipatory or apocalyptic potential.

My essay on Television Characters Blogging is grouped with other essays concerned with the commercial aspects of Internet fictions.

Buy, read and review! 🙂
