"A Life Set for Two" is a book-length hypertext poem, written in Visual BASIC. Adaptive techniques vary link positions and text within nodes on the fly to emulate the processes of thought and memory. It appeared in The Eastgate Quarterly Review of Hypertext (Fall 1996, vol. 2, no. 4) along with Richard Smyth’s “Genetis”.
