Join us at our virtual launch on 15 September 2020. Readings by Julian Bishop, Erica Buist, Drew Pisarra, Aidan Martin, Ellie Stewart and Rab Ferguson. We'd love to see you there.

Cyber Smut is a daring collection of fiction, nonfiction and poetry about how the internet and technology impact our lives, our sexuality and how we love. Some are playful and romantic. Some deal with loneliness and disconnection. Some address struggles with addiction, alienation, and the burning desire for fame. An edgy read on contemporary culture.

We have some nice reviews on Goodreads.

“In Cyber Smut, editor Julianne Ingles has collected a dynamic batch of essays, poetry and short fiction that joyously celebrates and thoughtfully questions how advancing technology has altered the course of human sexuality, and love. It's a playful, raucous, and sincere literary survey of digital diddling in all its forms"

 Nate Ragolia, publisher, Spaceboy Books LLC, author of The Retroactivist and There You Feel Free

"Cyber Smut is an intelligent and imaginative collection of speculative literature that seeks to examine the various channels of communication we assign meaning to. The pieces that stand out are those that make the reader question how we communicate and how we could communicate with others. It asks the reader to think about how the lack of direct contact alters how we read each image and text, and asks the reader to consider whether they can cross the threshold to form deeper bonds, or whether they’ll go for the surface level smut and be left with that feeling of emptiness and exhaustion that comes from staring at a screen for too long."

 Alex Carrigan, editor and critic
