Rezensionen
"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
