    Cyborgs, Postmodernism, Virtual Reality, Media, Philosophy of Information
    and Technology, Internet and Cyberspace, and Digital culture, Science
    Fiction and technology, hypertext etc -during my cyberexplorations and
    thought, this might interest you. I hope these books will also help you in
    your teaching and learning -the books are *highly recommended*

    Actually, I tried to collect some important books on the contemporary
    issues related to Philosophy of cyberspace, AI, computers and VR, digital
    culture and technology, hypertext and writings etc, but if I have missed
    some other books on important issues related to above themes, please let
