Kaleidotrope - Fiction (Poetry)

Kaleidotrope publishes predominantly speculative fiction and poetry?science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but also compelling work that blurs the lines between these and falls outside of neat genre categories. Man does not live on space ships, elves, and ghostly ax murderers alone, after all.
