As many of my followers know, Zoetic Press does a magical thing on iOS devices called Lithoreader. This is an app which makes a book a fractal work of art. Take a beloved classic, add a new short spin or a swath of poetry, and ta-dah! Magic! After all, every time we read a work of literature, we add our own perspective and take away a personal message.
For those who prefer to see the trick behind the trick, go here.
The only drawback to this sleight-of-hand is for those of us who only speak Android. While there isn't an app yet, the Android faithful can now see those stories for FREE in the archives within reach on a shelf at the NonBinary Review website.
Who doesn't love free stories and poetry grown like spring blossoms (or welling drops of blood)?

My own story Walton's Doctrine is found here.
Two of the stories from this issue were nominated for the 2014 Pushcart Prize and another for Best of the Net! It's an honor to play in the same sandbox as these talented artists.
I must also drop a curtsy to the amazing team at Zoetic Press, and especially Allie Marini and Lise Quintana, for their concerted efforts to make the world of publishing a warm and fertile ground for writers. Please take the time to check out the app if you have the tech, and if not spend some time browsing the free archives.
