Introduction [to New Narratives: Stories and Storytelling in the Digital Age]
Editors' introduction to a collection of essays on digital narratology.
We acknowledge that the range of texts interrogated by the authors in this volume will soon appear not so very ‘new’ at all. Instead, they might best be regarded as a selective snapshot of narrative practices --practices already significantly different from the first hypertext fictions that were the focus of the first wave of digital narratology.
...one of the defining concerns of the volume is to challenge the often arbitrary divisions made between theory and practice, or between theoretical frameworks and the modes of storytelling that complement rather than contradict one another.
