Our thanks go first to all the authors of this unique anthology for their generative 'essays,' their ongoing ideas and feedback, and patience as we all came to terms with Scalar, the novel content management system that is the platform for this anthology. Scalar is designed and developed by a team at the University of Southern California and we're particularly grateful for this unique opportunity to work with such an innovation in publishing, so our thanks go to Steve Anderson, Tara McPherson, Craig Dietrich and Erik Loyer for their stalwart support of our endeavour.

As part of the editorial process, the collection was strengthened by the creative and intellectual contributions of individual editors, each of whom worked uniquely with one contributor, and so we would like to thank Sheila Schroeder, Kim Sawchuk, and David Clark for their editorial support, Dayna McLeod for some early support, and to acknowledge authors Adrian Miles, Will Luers and Chris Hanson who generously worked as editors too. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our anonymous reviewer, who responded to our work-in-progress with immense insight and astute suggestions for refinement. Profuse thanks to our research assistants Vanessa Meyer and Alison Naturale, for their enthusiasm and dynamic efforts, as they joined us in the final stretch of editing and design. Thanks also to Sean Fraser for some earlier design work, and to everyone who helped out at Database|Narrative|Archive, the international symposium on nonlinear digital storytelling held in Montreal in May 2011.

Finally, we'd like to acknowledge the agencies that have underwritten the production of this anthology: an initial round of funding from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FQRSC) for the Concordia Interactive Narrative Experimentation and Research Group (CINER-G), which, together with support from Concordia's Office of the Vice-President, Research & Graduate Studies, allowed us to stage Database|Narrative|Archive. Since then, we have benefited from the support of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) grant, through which we have continued the development of the Korsakow System, and the assembly, editing and design of this anthology.
