khōréō’s first issue is out now!
Our first issue is now live and features five fantastic short stories, one lovely essay, and a truly gorgeous cover. If you backed our Kickstarter, you should already have access to this issue! Miss out? Never fear: you can buy a copy of our first issue, or a subscription for the whole year, in our shop.
We publish fiction, non-fiction, and art; our stories are fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and any genre in between or around it—as long as there’s a speculative element. We’re especially interested in writing and art that explore some aspect of migration, whether explicitly (themes of immigration, colonialism, etc.), metaphorically, or with a sly nod and a wink.
Any act of migration, whether voluntary or forced, requires a recalibration of self-identity. We are defined, after all, by the environment that surrounds us: people, language, food, smell, sound. To change any one of them may be disorienting; to change them may leave us adrift. What better medium to explore this sensation than speculative fiction, where the author must create a new world for the reader to inhabit?
