So, um...t-shirts! For the consumer-minded among you.

They each feature Remi Treuer's nifty cover illustration from issue #2 (still available, by the by). I'm wearing one of the black t-shirts right now, and I'm really pleased with how they came out.

Heather was one of the first supporters of Kaleidotrope, so it seems only fair that I should do a little of the same for her new endeavor, Project Paper Crane. The way it works is pretty simple:
  1. Send an email Project Paper Crane. Name and address, please.
  2. Wait for said crane to arrive (it may take a while).
  3. Email a picture of your crane when it arrives.
I'm going to take part and maybe donate a little folding money -- get it? it's origami, so folding money's a pun...? It's...oh, never mind. Just go, get a crane.

Copies of Kaleidotrope #2 are now available for purchase. Each issue is just $4 -- less than ten cents a page -- and a four-year subscription is just $16 altogether. (International rates may vary.)

And while you're sending Kaleidotrope a little love, why not also consider these fine publications?

  • Army of the Fantastic -- "13 original tales of fantastical battles for anyone who needs a dose of un-reality."
  • Interfictions: An Anthology of Interstitial Writing -- "Nineteen writers dig into the imaginative spaces between conventional genres-realistic and fantastical, scholarly and poetic, personal and political-and bring up gems of new fiction: interstitial fiction."
  • Logorrhea: Good Words Make Good Stories -- "We asked twenty-one of today’s most talented and inventive writers to go even further and pen an original tale inspired by one of dozens of obscure and fascinating championship words."
I think I'm going to go pick up a copy of each. You can never have enough good stories to read.
