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!



The mission of The Kyanite Press is to discover new talent in science fiction and fantasy literature, showcase this talent, and foster the continued growth of our regular contributors.  We are finding groundbreaking individuals who take everything we love about these genres and spin amazing new tales with meaningful themes.  Our growing family of author-contributors are on the cutting edge of their craft. We look forward to seeing more from them both here and in other formats!
