Short biography: 

Born 1957 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Stuart Moulthrop is a writer, cybertext designer, and Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His early work, Victory Garden (1991), has been mentioned among the "golden age" of hypertext fiction. Later works, including Hegirascope (1995), Reagan Library (1999), and Under Language (2007), pertain more closely to our current age of artificial fibers. Moulthrop is the author of many essays on hypertext and digital culture, including some that have been multiply anthologized and translated.
