HypeDyn "(pronounced "hyped in") is a procedural hypertext fiction authoring tool for people who want to create text-based interactive stories that adapt to reader choice. HypeDyn is free to download and open source, and runs on Linux, MacOS and Windows." It reminds me of Twine which actually seems to be based on TiddlyWiki and is like a Storyspace on the cheap. I have not tried it, but it looks more sophisticated than Twine (and their command line tool Twee, written in Python). For one thing, it allows rules that let the reader choose only certain paths in the story. I doubt this is useful for nonfiction.
