Editorial Reviews

Game Bias
"I almost dismissed Abstract State-warp Machines as overwrought, and I know some people will dismiss it based on the fact that itís a poem that requires a good deal of concentration. All of this is a shame. [...] Does the poetry of Abstract State-warp Machines make the choices it presents even more challenging? Absolutely, but the difficulty of the game reflects the richness of the subject. This innovative work will stand the test of time."
