Kyanite Press Volume 1 Issue 6

Volume 1, Issue 6 of the Kyanite Press is now available for pre order! CLICK HERE to be sure to get a copy from the first print run!

Returning to the feel of the first ever issue back in September of 2018; rather than having a single theme, we have assembled here a mixture of fantasy, science fiction, and weird tales. Everything from space travel to sword-wielding heroics can be found within these pages. One of the most wonderful outcomes of publishing the journal has been discovering a variety of stories with styles and themes we might have never otherwise dreamed of, and this issue showcases that.

The Kyanite Press is a journal of speculative fiction.  Inside this homage to the pulp magazines of the last century you will find tales of science fiction, fantasy, and horror from some of the most imaginative authors in the genre.  Every issue is packed with fiction and NO commercial advertising, just information about Kyanite Publishing books and authors!  Explore amazing new worlds, travel to exotic realms, and delve inside the human mind in ways you will never see anywhere else!

Kyanite Press v1 i5 is up for pre-order

Volume 1, Issue 5 of the Kyanite Press is now available for pre-order!

Get it direct through our website here, from Amazon, or from Barnes & Noble.

Welcome to another amazing issue packed full of a variety of social science fiction tales for your eager minds to process. One of the remarkable things about the sub-genre is that it isn’t limited to just one style of story. In fact, any kind of science fiction tale can include elements of social science fiction. In this issue, you’ll be treated to tales of mystery, mayhem, and murder from some of our favorite speculative fiction authors. Many social questions will be posed, examined, and answered before you’ve finished reading.

Effective today – February 28, 2019 – submissions for the Kyanite Press are temporarily closed. 

We would like to thank everybody who has submitted their amazing stories since we announced the Kyanite Press over the summer. Starting with our very first issue, we have been fortunate to showcase some of the most innovative speculative fiction that can be found anywhere.

We are wrapping up the last two issues of Volume One with the submissions that have been received up to this point. We have some very exciting plans for Volume Two, and you can expect a huge announcement and the re-opening of submissions some time in May 2019.

Kyanite Press: Volume 1, Issue 2 – Launching Today

Volume 1, Issue 2 of the Kyanite Press launches today. This issue takes a look at the human condition from many unique angles and is sure to delight fans of the format. The paperback edition is available for order, and pre-orders will be shipping shortly. The eBook edition has been delayed due to an “extended maintenance window” with our ISBN providor. We do not have an estimate on when this will be resolved, but are working to find a way around the issue.

This issue of the Kyanite Press contains some amazing stories that all examine the human condition in one way or another. From the introspective psychology of “The Teacup” by David McAlister to the grand social drama of “Stone Faces” by Marcus Hansson, these stories all examine different facets of our humanity. Be it exploring our deepest fear – the fear of the unknown – or showing how a society of people works together to overcome obstacles. “Worth Dying For” by Chad D. Christy and “Breakpoint” by Darius Jones both explore questions of what makes us human and what we would do to preserve what is most important to us. “The Greatest Confidence” by Martin Berman-Gorvine explores ways in which we prey upon and take advantage of the trust of others. “In the Under Realm” by Steven M. Nedeau shows the human spirit to fight for our survival. “Below the Cubicle Sea” by Dennis Mombauer examines the mark we leave on the world and ways in which the world might one day work to erase those marks, illustrating the uncomfortable truth that all we do is potentially fleeting and temporary in the grand scheme of the cosmos.
