There are some books which are more concerned with algorithms (in the correct sense of the term) within the field of Software Studies/Digital Humanities/Critical Code Studies.

Some books and articles:

[1] Protocol by Alexander Galloway

[2] 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1));:GOTO 10 by Nick Montfort et al

[3] On "Sourcery" or Code as Fetish by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun

[4] The Exploit by Alexander Galloway and Eugene Thacker

I can list many more.

There was also a doctoral seminar taught by Alexander Galloway at NYU in 2010 called The Politics of Code. The reason Galloway's name pops up a ton is that he worked with r-s-g.org and has a fair amount of experience coding in addition to his academic credentials in literary theory.
