Digital Fictions: Storytelling in a Material World (Google eBook)
When researchers in computer-mediated communications discuss digital textuality, they rarely venture beyond the now commonplace notion that computer textuality embodies contemporary post-structuralist theories. In addition, latterday Luddites do not discriminate among particular forms of computer texts and the different practices of reading and writing each form engenders. Written for students and faculty of contemporary literature and composition theories, this book is the first to move from general to specific considerations. Advancing from general considerations of how computers are changing literacy, Digital Fictions moves on to a specific consideration of how computers are altering one particular set of literature practices: reading and writing fiction.
