A Hypertext Tool for Writers and Readers
Storyspace is a hypertext writing environment, especially well suited to creating large, complex, and challenging hypertexts.
Storyspace is designed for the process of writing. Where other systems often emphasize visual presentation, Storyspace emphasizes writing, linking, and organizing. Storyspace creates and follows links quickly and directly.
Storyspace 3 is a tool for writing and reading hypertext narrative, for fictional and nonfictional stories told with links. Long the tool of choice for serious hypertext writers, Storyspace now offers new features, new tools, and unmatched elegance for handling complex stories with ease.
From the earliest experimental hypertexts, writers have learned that simply linking pages together isn't enough. What works in small web sites leaves readers wandering and adrift in book-length environments. Storyspace solved the problem back in the 1990s with guard fields that activate and disable links as the reader moves through the document.
Familiar hypertext tools support calligraphic hypertext, hypertext that begins without links and lets the writer link things that should be connected. Storyspace 3 adds sculptural hypertext tools as well. Sculptural hypertext begins with densely linked bundles like decks of cards, from which the reader might select pages in any sequence. But Storyspace hypertexts aren't just random: writers can remove links and enforce constraints so the hypertext organizes itself. Sculptural hypertext encourages painterly narrative in which the writer controls what she knows to be necessary while relaxing control over the reader when control might not be needed.
What's new in version 3.2.0 (013):
・Guard Fields appear in the map.
・Include writing spaces in other writing spaces.
