Really enjoyed this. It's a well written short story basically about taking the psychological underpinnings of addiction and imagining a non-drug based way of creating euphoria. Highly recommended.

Psychoactive Cafe is a terrific read! Paula connects her excellent, and very subtle, sense of humour with astute social commentary in a futuristic examination of psychedlic happiness, or is that just escape? If you wonder at all about human happiness this book will take you on a great ride. I recommend it highly.
