Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories define how we think, play, and understand our lives. In this comprehensive and readable book — already a classic statement of the aesthetics of digital media, acclaimed by practitioners and theorists alike — Janet Murray shows how the computer is reshaping the stories we live by. Murray discusses the unique properties and pleasures of digital environments and connects them with the traditional satisfactions of narrative. She analyzes the dramatic satisfaction of participatory stories and considers what would be necessary to move interactive fiction from the formats of childish games and confusing labyrinths into a mature and compelling art form. Through a blend of imagination and techno-wizardry, Murray provides both readers and writers with a guide to the storytelling of the future.

Synopsis:

Acclaimed by practitioners and theorists alike, this classic statement of the aesthetics of digital media shows how the computer is reshaping the stories we live by.
