Going beyond the Electronic Book Paradigm by Linking across Books in DynaText

Hypertext in Hypertext (1994) the expanded electronic version of my Hypertext: The Convergence of Contemporary Criticial Theory and Technology (1992), links passages in the text of the print version to a range of materials, including entries from the Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism. This example of cross-book linking parallels the way the text of an electronic scholarly edition can draw upon reference materials relevant to multiple texts and multiple authors. DynaText can also be configuredas an atomized, networked hypertext.
