Join us as we explore ten different realms of magic, adventure, and
excitement! From exploring ancient ruins to save a sickly child in The
Hand That Holds to the classic sword and sorcery action of The Iron
Sorcerer, this issue proves that high fantasy can provide a platform for
a variety of entertaining, exciting, and thoughtful stories.
A new beginning to a beloved franchise. Five novelettes, five short stories, ten amazing authors. Almost 100,000 words, four times as many as our previous regular issues.
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.
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.
