The SmartMonsters Bookstore
SmartMonsters' games are not for everyone. We write for
adults with fairly rich educational and cultural backgrounds.
We assume our players like to read, and know how to type. We don't
write for kids. If this sounds like you, welcome!
to read our essay, "Can a Game be Literature?"
The works listed here have all been used in some way as

"In his essay on Dante, Eliot writes that he learned from Baudelaire how to use the city in his poetry to evoke a sense of an urban hell in the modern world. Baudelaire revealed [...] 'the possibility of fusion between the sordidly realistic and the phantasmagoric, the possibility of the juxtaposition of the matter-of-fact and the fantastic.'" -- Richard Lehan, The City in Literature ( info)
