Cyber Smut is an anthology of fiction, non-fiction and poetry 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…” Emma Lee, award-winning reviewer
