Lost in cyberspace : essays and far-fetched tales by Val Schaffner( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lost in Cyberspace is a humanist's excursion to tomorrow's world, a seductive and frightening realm where sex takes place by modem, computers sue their owners, Faust drives a Porsche, a computer is elected president, Satan has a soul-free number, and on May Day all the ATM machines crash simultaneously. A computer screen glimmering in a haunted house is the culminating image of this provocative collection, which is neither fiction nor journalism but inhabits a peculiar space of its own - call it virtual. For virtual reality, via machine or imagination, is the theme on which Val Schaffner sounds his 41 variations
