Otis Books/Seismicity Editions is pleased to publish Twentieth-Century Man by Michael Joyce. Starting with a disappearance, Twentieth-Century Man contemplates issues imbedded in aging, memory, language, family, and even life and death, covering and uncovering many profound mysteries. The New York Times called Michael Joyce’s afternoon “the granddaddy of hypertext fictions,” and The Toronto Globe and Mail said that it “is to the hypertext interactive novel what the Gutenberg bible is to publishing.” Other hyperfictions include “On the Birthday of the Stranger,” Twilight, A Symphony, and Twelve Blue, the collaborative work The Sonatas of Saint Francis, and the shorter hyperfictions WOE, Lucy's Sister, Reach and Lasting Image (with Carolyn Guyer). Joyce is also the author of eleven books, including The War Outside Ireland, Moral Tales and Meditations: Technological Parables and Refractions, Was: annals nomadique/A novel for the internet, Liam’s Going, Disappearance, Going the Distance, and Foucault, in Winter, in the Linnaeus Garden. His collaborative multimedia work with Alexandra Grant includes Lost Hills Hokku and The Ladder Series. In 2013, he was appointed Laureate of the City of Paris and selected to participate in the Institut français artist-in-residence program at Les Récollets. Joyce teaches at Vassar, where he co-founded the program in Media Studies.

Seating is limited.
