Ergodic literature refers to texts that require a reader to make a different or greater than normal effort, usually because they are non-linear in some way. An ergodic text re-interprets the idea of ‘plot’, plays with layout or typography, requires the reader to find a ‘key’ to unlock the meanings of the text or introduces an unreliable narrator or digressions.
Concrete poetry is poetry in which the typographical arrangement of words is as important in conveying the intended effect as the conventional elements of the poem, such as meaning of words, rhythm, rhyme and so on.
Speculative fiction is an umbrella term encompassing the more fantastical fiction genres, specifically science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird fiction, supernatural fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history in literature.
