Overview

Although cyberspace has become a reality in the daily lives of millions of people, there have been few successful attempts at charting the new virtual world(s). Cybermapping and the Writing of Myth presents, for the first time, a cogent theoretical blueprint for mapping our bearings in cyberspace. The last bastion of myth, cyberspace is a space which is continuously re-written by users who move in a city-like construct ultimately built on language. Juxtaposing critical theory, fiction, and philosophy, this book challenges us to re-assess our views of what we call «reality» in the light of how new technologies have changed our lives.
