Tech Lit Reading List

My plan is to annotate these as I reread them, but for now, here's my own New Year's inspired top ten tech lit books list:

1. My Mother Was a Computer: Digital Subjects and Literary Texts
2. Hypertext 3.0: Critical Theory and New Media in an Era of Globalization
3. First Person: New Media as Story, Performance, and Game
4. Narrative as Virtual Reality: Immersion and Interactivity in Literature and Electronic Media
5. Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace
6. Cybertext: Perspectives on Ergodic Literature
7. Narrative across Media: The Languages of Storytelling
8. The Language of New Media
9. The Digital Dialectic: New Essays on New Media
10. Writing Machines

I really wish I could construct a similar bibliography for literary forgery, but it seems that most of the books on the subject are gee-golly "did he really do that?" treatments of multiple forgeries without broader social or literary analysis.
