Notes on Reading Afternoon narrative. Then I selected an interactive narrative called Afternoon: a Story". Originally written by one of the designers of StorySpace as a "test" file, this particular narrative can be described broadly as a cross between Borges'(1979) Book of Sand and a fluid form of Julio Cortazar 's Hopscotch. Where Borges' Book of Sand was infinite and no page ever yielded the same contents twice, Cortazar's Hopscotch is written -Cortazar notes in a preface -to be read as "many" books, but is confined, by virtue of its binding and the numbering system he employs, to existing as merely two.

At the time I read those passages, I had gleaned nothing from the details concerning Nausicaa's background and character to suggest, however remotely, a career of prostitution, nor did the details jive with the sensitivity her character seemed to display or with the tone of her speech. Although I was confused by these odd references to "tricks", I did not discard these passages or exclude them from my endeavours to interpret the intricate web of relationships and deceit; instead, I foregrounded what seemed intelligible and relegated the rest to background.
