Abstract (in English): 

An early non-fiction hypertext exploring "the significance of the cyborg in 20th century writing. from Thomas Pynchon and William Gibson to Haraway and Derrida." This book-length work was published as a stand-alone Storyspace hypertext on a disk/CD-ROM.

This work was published under Diane Greco Josefowicz' earlier name, Diane Greco.

Pull Quotes: 

If cyborgs know about anything, they know about parts. Spare parts, parts and wholes, prostheses, replacements, enhancements. How do you make sense of all these pieces? After the disaster, when things fall apart, cyborgs know how to stitch themselves back together.
