Over the course of a year (late 2012 – late 2013) author Illya Szilak wrote a series of articles on Huffington Post about electronic literature that are worth reading for anyone interested in the topic. Szilak is the author of Queerskins – A Novel and Reconstructing Mayakovsky – A Novel of the Future.
Unlike most people who write about e-lit, Szilak is a physician and not an academic. As a creator of contemporary e-lit she brings a perspective that is often absent from the conversation on this topic.
Due to the navigational features of the Huffington Post it isn’t easy to read her articles in the order they were written. So, I arranged the following links to each article in chronological order.
Just Playing Around: Why E-lit Matters 3/15/2013
Killing the Literary: The Death of E-lit 3/19/2013
Fleshly Data: E-lit and the Post-Human 5/10/2013
