    "It seems natural that this generation should embrace the short story as its literary art form. We're more at home with twitter and the Evening Standard than Homer, barely finding time for a quick whip through a novella on a sunny afternoon (sigh). And with the quick fire voice of its generation Spoken Ink embraces this without compunction." (Notes on the Underground)
