I still think Sylvia Brownrigg's _the metaphysical
touch: a novel_ (1998) deserves a look in.  Easy to
read, talks of the deeper issues, includes a nice
email transcription amongst a group that id's
themselves only as dead poets. No cyberfiction in it
at all. But a nice story of a PhD student who had her
house burn down in Berkeley with all of her PhD stuff
in it. Come to think if it, a bit nightmarish for
those of us writing a thesis. But as I have said here
before: best book on Kant and email that I have ever
