Canonicity and IF - an IFDB Pollby juliaofbath
I'm interested in determining whether or not a clear canon has emerged within the world of IF/hypertext. Of course, there is a clear critical opinion regarding which works belong to this tentative canon, but I'm interested in what readers and fans of the genre feel. I mean 'canon' in the traditional literary sense. For the sake of clarity I will define it here less as a coherent, codified list of works and more as a loose assemblage held in the minds (and in this case lists) of readers, reviewers, and critics.
