A detective story seems like it would work well in the hyper textual medium. The hyper textual piece Califia by M. D. Coverley is based loosely around a detective story about finding lost gold, but there was so much information that I felt that I was gaining little headway and quickly got bored. Perhaps this is because I'm used to reading more traditional books where I am spoon fed plot. Hyper textual fiction truly asks the reader to take an active role in writing the story. I argue, though, that this does not lessen the emphasis on the author, and his or her ability. The author must be able to make a story interesting enough that the reader is willing to contribute to it's creation. A reader will not read a boring story, much less help author it.
