Two interesting Slashdot threads… one is “Gaming Academia Gets More Mainstream Press“, a response to the recent NY Times article on the upcoming Princeton conference, and another is discussion of Magic Words: Interactive Fiction in the 21st Century, a beautiful nine-part article on interactive fiction, featuring interviews with Emily Short, Stephen Granade, Andrew Plotkin, Adam Cadre, and IF Competition winners Dan Rapivinto & Star Foster.

Update: I just noticed that The Onion has a favorable review of Nick Montfort’s Twisty Little Passages: An Approach to Interactive Fiction. (The link will expire soon.)
