Make room for everything. That’s our motto. Literature, theatre, film, the content you imbibe on those little screens we all carry around in our pockets these days. Make room for it all.
The lack of video, the lack of audio, the lack of ways to change the forking outcomes of plot (what is rather crudely referred to as “interactivity”) is a feature of literature, not a bug. And, as it turns out, books are interactive. They’re recipes for the imagination.
