What people are saying about Cyber Smut

"...looking at social media and technology’s influences on relationship between people and machines. Sex is mentioned but the focus in on the desire to connect, loneliness, addictions and search for a soulmate, even a platonic one. The “smut” part of the title is more about the willingness of writers to look at the dark side of relationships and what pushes people and/or machines together when intimacy is desired but in short supply."

“...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, author of The Retroactivist and There You Feel Free

"...a series of speculative and realism-based literature that ...address the ‘smut’ that comes from having a constant stream of information and media in our daily lives and how it changes the way we view our bodies and the bodies of those around us."
