Grigar was given this copy by Judy Malloy for Grigar's research into Uncle Roger for the Pathfinders project. Uncle Roger by Judy Malloy first appeared from 1986-1988, placing it among the first generation of born digital works--predating the earliest versions of Michael Joyce's "afternoon: a story." There are currently six digital versions of the work: Version 1 (1986-87), the serial novel for the net; Version 2 (1986-87), the interactive narrative for the net); Version 3 (1986-88), the boxed version as stand alone artists software in narrabase programmed in AppleSoft BASIC; Version 4 (1988), the boxed version as stand alone artists software in narrabase programmed in GW-BASIC; Version 5 (1995, 2014), the web version; Version 6 (2014), the DOSBox emulator Version. Malloy considers the web version to be the authorized one. It's content varies from the four previous versions due to its migration from the elite, artistic audience of The WELL to the more mainstream audience of the World Wide Web. There is also a seventh version created as a card catalog was produced in 1986-88. This is one of five extant copies of Version 3.3, created 1986-1988. It consists of a plastic floppy disk box that Malloy affixed a hand-designed label with the work's title. Inside are two of the three floppy disks--"A Party in Woodside" and "The Blue Notebook"--in their original hand-designed sleeves. Also included are all of the inserts that Malloy produced for this version of the work. Missing is the third floppy disk, "Terminals."
