A classic of electronic fiction, afternoon is required reading. Complex and richly imagined, this is the story of Peter, a technical writer who (in one reading) begins his afternoon with a terrible suspicion that the wrecked car he saw hours earlier might have belonged to his former wife:

I want to say I may have seen my son die this morning.

afternoon is a rich and lyrical exploration of the tangled strands of knowing and memory, the interconnections that bind and unravel the intersecting lives of its postmodern characters.

afternoon was created using Storyspace. Many times awarded. Published by Eastgate.
