Fiction for Debugging

The Problem and The Solution

After writing about music for debugging and founding software narratology I decided to start writing about fiction. The first masterpiece to introduce is The Sound and The Fury76 by William Faulkner77. When we saw a color version published by Folio Society (an original idea by Faulkner now fulfilled by modern printing technology) we immediately recognized its importance for software trace analysis. We're pretty sure Faulkner would have been delighted to see trace analysis patterns and how they may help in writing fiction (page 384).
