We Descend - a hypertext book

A little expensive for a hypertext book (or is it?), but I would like to read We Descend by Bill Bly.  It seems interesting.

It looks science-fictional and appears to be about a post-apocalyptic civilization remembering or mis-remembering its past.  Perhaps I will take the plunge and purchase it.

The path that got me to find this book was tortuous. Googling Valenstein got me some images of hearts looking like Frankenstein's monster and a few other images that were interesting.  One of which led to the Woodchipper analysis of Mary Shellley's Frankenstein, which led to me wondering who would build such an interesting piece of software, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), who also curate donated collections of some artists/authors work who have Bill Bly's papers and electronic material because he was a pioneer in writing hypertext novels and wrote We Descend.
