Introduction to Hypertext Notes

The majority of the Hypertext Notes pages are, in one way or another, responses to Nell's Lost in a Book, but there are also a number of pages devoted to discussions of Broderbund's Myst, Michael Joyce's Afternoon, a story (coming soon), and Stuart Moulthrop's Victory Garden (also coming soon). And of course there are a number of pages that don't fit anywhere particular.
