Michael Joyce (born 1945) is a professor of English at Vassar College, New York, US. He is also an important author and critic of electronic literature. Joyce's afternoon, a story, 1987, was among the first literary works of hypertext fiction to present itself as undeniably serious literature, and experimented with the short-story form in novel ways. It was created with the then-new Storyspace software, deployed the ambiguity and dubious narrator characteristic of high modernism, along with some suspense and romance elements, in a story whose meaning could change dramatically depending on the path taken through its lexias on each reading. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Joyce_(writer)
