Oracle of the electronic age, Marshall McLuhan believed artists could wake us and offer new windows into the world.  This diverse collection brings together twenty-nine poets, writers, and artists who channel McLuhan as both medium and muse. Like McLuhan’s work, this volume will delight,  divert, provoke, incite and inspire readers to channel McLuhan in their own imagination and creative endeavors.

McDaid, Jill McGinn, Elizabeth McLuhan, Peter C. Montgomery, Dean Motter, Alexandra Oliver, John Oughton, Si Philbrook, B.W. Powe, Robert Priest, Stephen Roxborough, Lance Strate, Steve Szewczok, Andrea Thompson, Toshio Ushiroguchi-Pigott, John Watts, Dale Winslow, Tom Wolfe.
