Negative Space: a Computerized Video Novel

Creative Work
Record Status: 
Description (in English): 

"The first in a line of "computer video novels" that meld text, graphics, and video", according to Robert Kendall in his article "Writing for the New Millenium: the Birth of Electronic Literature." The WorldCat entry summarised it thus: "Through interplay of computer and video, the story of a professor and his wife and their quest to start a family is told," and specifies that the work consists of a VHS tape with a 3.5" floppy disk.

(The publication date is from the WorldCat record for the floppy disk edition, and I haven't found any supporting evidence of such an early date - or another date, either. Is it likely that the CD version would have come five whole years later?)
