MEDIA REVIEWS
"Once I started a story, I couldn't stop until I finished it. And then once I finished one story, I immediately wanted to go on to the following story to see where the next author took his or her chosen line. As someone who's never had the imagination or aptitude for creative writing, it's truly fascinating to see how a group of authors can use a single line of text as the jump-off point to create such diverse and interesting characters, worlds, and themes"

"Highly addictive and creatively inspiring" - VG Blogger

"An engaging read from start to finish" - Nerdspan

"A delightful read" - Gamers Sphere

"Mash Up is a fantastic collection of stories from different authors who bring their own unique perspective to each one." - Bio Gamer Girl

"The resulting stories transcend novelty through their sheer originality and range, from a conspiracy thriller using the first line of Edward II, to a story about an aging astronaut that shares a first line with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." - Barnes & Noble Sci Fi
