        ABSTRACT
        This paper presents a historical view of hypertext looking at preweb
        hypertext as a domesticated species bred in captivity, and
        arguing that on the web, some breeds of hypertext have gone feral.
        Feral hypertext is no longer tame and domesticated, but is
        fundamentally out of our control. In order to understand and work
        with feral hypertext, we need to accept this and think more as
        hunter-gatherers than as the farmers we have been for
        domesticated hypertext. The paper discusses hypertext in general
        with an emphasis on literary and creative hypertext practice.
