Murder, She Links


'On The Night of Mr. Melvyn's Murder' is one of my favorite pieces of hypertext literature. Its cast includes a seedy menagerie of back-alley characters that would be at home in a Martin Scorsese film. Each character is depicted by brilliant, minimalistic hand-illustrations. Historical figures also make cameo appearances -- Hunter S. Thompson, Francis Bacon, Tom Waits, Elton John, and Don King, to name a few. Follow the splaying plot to discover whodunit, or simply click around and view the funky characters. - Curt Cloninger
