The “stone” stands for direct contact with experience.

The Stoneslide Corrective—an online literary journal of “thoughtful fiction that’s also deeply moving, highly imaginative satire that pokes at the walls shielding our eyes from injustices and cruelties, and the occasional spot of pure zaniness”—is raising funds to release there first-ever print edition.
This anthology, which will blend new material along with some of the “greatest hits” of the past three years, is slated for release this April. To help curb the substantial up-front printing costs, the Stoneslide Corrective is holding a Kickstarter campaign starting today. At its most basic level, this is a great way to pre-order your copy of what is proving to be a gorgeous, strange anthology of stories, satire, and photography. At the other end of the spectrum, your donation can earn you a large-size print of any photo in the journal, a Stoneslide T-shirt, and an editorial consultation on your own work.
If you need further convincing, please watch the video below (which features, among other things, me and a piece of firewood). And if you want to feel the brothy-warmth of generosity without the pestering annoyance of actually donating, feel free to utilize the Corrective’s Thank You Generator.
