Moulthrop began experimenting with hypertext theory in the 1980s, and has since authored several articles as well as written many hypertext fiction works. He has had an article published in Wired magazine His hypertext Victory Garden was featured on the front page of the New York Times Book Review from a review by Robert Coover, and Hegirascope won the Eastgate Systems HYSTRUCT Award. He served as co-editor for Postmodern Culture and is currently listed as part of their editorial collective. He is partnered with Nancy Kaplan, Michael Joyce, and John McDaid in TINAC (Textuality, Intertextuality, Narrative, and Conscioussness). In 1987, Moulthrop created forking paths for an undergraduate writing class as a demonstration of hypertext, appropriating Borges' "Garden of Forking Paths". This article acknowledges the possibility of having one source of data link to a group of data, which links to other group of data, and so forth until the viewer decides to exit the pool of information. The work is now available through The New Media Reader cd-rom. Currently, Moulthrop is working on Creatures and Creators, a hypermedia cross-edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and James Whale's 1931 film of the same title, and Chaos, a hypermedia fiction.
