This paper explores the use of a “thematic linking” model to support the authoring of complex, emergent hypertext fiction. Initial observations suggest that while this approach is promising, as it allows authors and readers to discover unexpected connections within a work, it is also potentially overwhelming, due to the second-order nature of the writing process.
