Genetis: A Rhizography


Genetis: A Rhizography

Authored by Richard Smyth
Published by Eastgate Systems, Inc. in 1996

In the style of what Gregory Ulmer calls the mystory, Richard Smyth uses the genre-defying capabilities of hypertext to present a case for the power of writing in desperate circumstances. After the narrator's mental meltdown on his honeymoon, he learns that only writing has the power to salvage his sanity and his life.
