Description (in English): 

This work was an early experiment with literary hypertext that has been discussed or mentioned in several early theoretical texts, but that has never been published in full because it mostly consists of text from Borges' short story "The Garden of Forking Paths". Moulthrop describes it as "a sort of low-grade literary pastiche concocted as a laboratory demonstration--or parlor game--for an undergraduate writing class in 1987." Documentation of the work, with most of the text from Borges' short story removed, is published on the CD that accompanies Montfort and Wardrip-Fruin's New Media Reader.
