“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
