Ted’s Caving Journal: Web 1.0 fiction

Ted’s Caving Journal” is a neat example of early web-based storytelling. Call it Web 1.0 fiction, with its non-social-media-friendly pages, simple page layout, and utterly basic navigation.  Copies of it are hosted across the Web, even on this Angelfire site, which adds some historical flavor.

The story concerns two men exploring a new cave system, and the increasing fear and mystery they feel as they make their way underground.  Readers navigate by clicking versions of “next”… until the last, dead link.
