"Storyworlds across Media fruitfully explores an important new concept in narrative theory - the storyworld - that is of compelling interest across disciplines, from TV writing and popular culture through to digital media design, and artificial intelligence." - Janet H. Murray, author of Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace "Storyworlds across Media offers a great deal of insight into the contemporary cultural use of proliferating opportunities (especially in digital media) for innovation in storytelling." - Richard Walsh, author of Novel Arguments: Reading Innovative American Fiction
