From gladiatorial combat against alien beasts to existential contemplation, the premier issue of the Kyanite Press is packed cover-to-cover with amazing content.  

Our feature this issue is “Prisoner Zero” by Matthew Standiford, a look at innovative thoughts on crime and punishment in a bleak future.  

Other great stories explore drowned cities, galactic auctions, steampunk adventures, celestial beings debating morality, and a gritty wizard hunting giant roaches in 1933 (“Madness at Miracle Mile” by  Alexander Thomas.)  Don’t miss these and other great stories in the premier issue of the Kyanite Press!


I am very excited to be introducing the first ever issue of the Kyanite Press!  This publication is a dream come true for me; for many reasons.  Most of all, because I love everything and anything that has to do with science fiction and fantasy!

More so than this, though, I am excited to be discovering new voices and visions.  Our goal with the Kyanite Press, and with Kyanite Publishing in general, is to discover new talent writing these genres and give them a place to share their stories.   — B.K. Bass
