    Transitioning our Sales and Fulfillment to Retail Partners in 2019

    As of January 1st, 2019 we will no longer be selling our ebooks or our print books on our website. We will continue to sell the Kyanite Press journal of speculative fiction, along with the yearly subscription (which is a steal!). Our decision to direct book buyers to our retail partners was based on several factors, including their ability to fulfill orders even faster than we can. Our readers can expect to find us through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and an indie bookstore near them. Follow our blog for updates as we expand that list! Note on Existing Orders If you’ve pre-ordered an ebook or print book that you have…

Check out this and more genre studies (with short fiction!) in the ongoing column: Discovering New Worlds with B.K. Bass. Social Science Fiction examines sociological, anthropological, and psychological issues as its main focus. The term was coined by Isaac Asimov to define his own work in the 1940’s. At the time, science fiction had consisted mostly of the ‘spaceships and ray guns‘ styles; such as what is often found in planetary romance tales. During the 1940’s, there was a movement spearheaded by the likes of Asimov and Robert A Heinlein to use science fiction as a way…
