Offline Computer Rhetoric Bibliography

Since I always try to maintain truth in advertising, these resources are not online. Unfortunately for the purposes of this web page, even though the Internet is a fairly computer-oriented place (and a fairly self-referential space), most of my research materials have come from books and print journals.
