Summary/Abstract: This article looks at the topic of hypermedia and geo-spatial and augmented literature from five angles. Firstly, it analyses the context where these phenomena first appeared, the New Media. Secondly, it presents the most important contemporary theories on the topic proposed by Lev Manovich, Stephen Wilson, Ronald T. Azuma and others. Thirdly, it discusses the issue of hypertext as defined by Ted Nelson, Roland Barthes, Charlie Green and George Landow. Fourthly, it examines the paradox of the limited appeal of hypertext and the simultaneous huge impact of hypermedia literature on readers. Finally, this article examines some examples of multimedia and geo-spatial and augmented literature. The conclusion of the article offers a way of approaching New Media literary practices.
