Product Details


“Fascinating. If you want some interesting, adult takes on aspects your favorite hobby, this is worth picking up.” –Felicia Day, author of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) and creator of The Guild

“Even those who doubt the editors’ claim that “video games have come to play a vital role in modern human civilization” will be enthralled by these 26 stories (most of which are original to this volume). . . . Wilson and Adams have assembled a provocative assortment of thoughtful stories, making a valuable contribution to ongoing conversations about the future directions of video gaming.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Sci-fi fans will find [Press Start to Play] well worth their while” —Kirkus Reviews
