Don't miss:
Deena Larsen's Century Cross, like The Perfect Couple, uses an abstractly-defined hypertext form to create a narrative framework.

Another very early hypertext, The Election of 1912, also used external links to provide linkage outside the text frame. This early style of hypertext is enjoying renewed popularity among Web writers.
