Abstract: Please note: this article is in Greek. It is a fact that a plethora of studies have been carried out on all types of traditional literature, with the exception of literature in electronic formats, an area which has remained largely unexplored. This paper examines one facet of such literature as a distinct body; that which appears in digital format on the Internet in Greek, mainly created by writers of the Diaspora. Greeks abroad have an important presence in this area, one which is evidently worthy of further research. The historical period covered in this study is ten years starting from the midnineties, when languages other than English acquired the technological capability to appear in droves in this new medium. Here, it is shown that this type of literature boasts a significantly improved potential for the adventurous writer, on account of its ease of composition, its inexpensive publishing means and its numerous display formats. Electronically presented literature is defined by some as hyper-literature; a term loosely used to describe that creative type of writing which is digital and appears in textual format whilst it can be enhanced by picture, sound or video. The scope is to discover its significance within the realm of its conventional counterparts.
