The article focuses on the use of dialogues in two early hypertext fictions. The hypertext fiction unmoor scraps and fragments of dialogue from any notion of a fixed context or a set sequence, creating the effect for the reader of being stuck in a loop where the same utterances recur. Moreover, hypertext fictions perpetuate an idea or ideal of dialogue as a way to work through issues or problems and even as a way of uncovering difficult truths that might otherwise remain hidden. However, it does not disrupt the notion of dialogue as something that is fixed and stable.
