For more pointers to books (mostly by dead people) on the Web, be sure to see the "Literature and Arts" index from CERN. You can also visit a WAIS poetry database. Carnegie Mellon has a fiction index as part of its "English Server." You can now also the Alex catalog of books on the Internet.

This exhibit features sound and color images. To take full advantage of it, use a hypermedia WWW browser like NCSA's Mosaic. To hear the readings, it also helps to be on a machine supporting audio. Of course, you can read the five chapters reproduced below on their own even if you are using a line-mode browser.

The text from the novel---roughly one sixth of the book is reproduced here---is kindly provided by the author with permission from Houghton Mifflin. In fact, you should read the disclaimer.
