This chapter discusses the impact the Web has had on fiction. It shows that the lack of competing ideologies has caused a lot of poets and novelists to study material constructions, which include the lettering and the arrangement of the words on a page. The chapter presents the new narrative as being able to imagine networks and even become a network itself.

Keywords: Web; network; fiction; material constructions; new narrative
