One Dot Com That's Not a Dot Bomb

While most dot-coms are going under left and right, the Alt-X Online Network, one of the first Net art and hypertext fiction sites to launch (way back in 1993), is flourishing. This summer, Alt-X is not only offering new, free ebook titles that can be downloaded from the Web onto one's Palm Pilot, but also is presenting mp3 compilations, Internet art exhibitions, and streaming audio installations online. The first eight ebook titles feature previously unpublished works by not only fiction writers, but Net art stars Mark Amerika and Eugene Thacker as well.
