See the Elephant, Issue One
See the Elephant is dedicated to fiction with a metaphysical slant—fiction that questions consensual reality and pushes the boundaries of genre—by both new and established writers from a variety of cultural and philosophical traditions. The stories in See the Elephant range from literary to soft science fiction to satire to folklore to visionary to magical realist to slipstream.
Issue One revolves around transformation: children who mutate their parents with their drawings, a missionary who melds minds, a hoarder who shifts reality with origami, a seductive sasquatch who can appear male or female, a man whose voice has the power to heal or kill, and more. Stories by Elizabeth Hand, Michael Wehunt, Nisi Shawl, Andrew S. Fuller, Eileen Gunn, Barry King, Zoe Fowler, J. August __, and Edward Ahern.
