McElroy, Joseph. Plus. New York: Knopf, 1977.

SF in the sense of "cybernetic (postmodern) fiction," Plus tells the story of a brain removed from a dying man and orbitted around Earth. The brain eventually regains consciousness and some memories. See D. Porush, "The Imp in the Machine," ch. 9 of his The Soft Machine (literary analysis) (q.v. under Literary Criticism). See in this Category A. McCaffrey's The Ship Who Sang and K. O'Donnell's Mayflies.
