OT: My first published hypertext up on BathHouse

Vyko poto et salut et salve!
My first published hypertext called "The Lost Parts of Artificial Women" is
finally up and running after it was accepted a year ago by Bathhouse Magazine,
an on-line poetry and hyperfiction site. The theme of the mag is hybridity and
contagion, so I adapted my old submission to Multilingua about the Jean
d'Arras' fourteenth-century French romance Melusine (half snake, half woman)
and changed it into what I call an "anti-essay" which means that it's neither
fiction nor exposition exactly but something in between. It has notes. For the
curious, here are new drawings and musical compositions of mine. The piece has
a language emphasis, so I thought you'd be interested. It's also a fairy tale.
PS-- this may be a problem of my own computer, but the second page, "Melusine
writing her tale in her bath" is supposed to have a soundbyte that starts when
you land on it. If it doesn't start, press forward and then go back. I've
written the editors.
Forgive the cross posting.
