Review quote

Our focus is contemporary writers writing about contemporary work. We also sought to assemble a collection that is as varied as the diversity of the global community by seeking work that is traditional and innovative in both form and content. These stories range from the end of the manufacturing era to our current moment of transition from muscle-to-mind economy, and even speculative fiction that looks toward our possible future as a global human culture from which every imaginable technology will be inextricable, for better and for worse. We are thankful to the writers who share their work with us and we hope this anthology will provoke, encourage, enlighten, and entertain. �From The Introduction by Josh Maday Nominated for The Pushcart Prize Award 2010
