Factography is a hypertext novel that weaves together a series of stories, which can be read either in a linear fashion or through a series of links. The links work in the same way as the mind, giving the novel a life all its own by creating a network of threads that connect together ideas, characters, place, and plot. In many ways, it give readers control of the text, allowing their minds to wander along the work in a way it might only after reading a linear novel for the second time. In other words, while the structure provides the reader the freedom to navigate freely through the text, it also helps as a textual guide, making suggestions of what one might take away from what might otherwise seem an unrelated collection.
