The First ISSUE

The first issue will be available towards the end of November 2015. It will be available through digital publishing outlets for Kindle and Nook Ereaders. Watch closely here on on our Twitter feed for updates. 

This issues' theme is:  

TECHNOLOGY INTERACTING WITH HUMANS.

The story can include anything that would tie in the theme of interactions between people and technology, machines, devices, etc. It could be a cowboy with a revolver, an 18th century detective using early fingerprinting techniques, a man with an artificial heart, or a machine that records dreams. Anything that uses the interaction of technology and humanity as an engaging device. The use of the theme does not have to be sledgehammered into our faces, it is meant to be a skillfully woven inclusion.
