The Kyanite Press v1i2, coming November 1st, 2018

NEXT ISSUE – NOV 1ST!

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.

– B.K. Bass, Editor in Chief
