The goal of speculative fiction has always been to examine the real world through the lens of the imaginary. By considering what could be, we gain a better understanding of what is.
The Colored Lens strives to do exactly that. By publishing four to five short stories and serialized novellas a quarter in genres ranging from fantasy, to science fiction, to slipstream or magical realism, we hope to help our readers see the world just a bit differently than before they came to our website.
No matter how fascinating the imaginary world can be, we live in the real world. Therefore we also publish non-fiction articles meant to broaden our perspectives and perceptions of the world around us.
Finally, we publish author interviews of writers whose books we have particularly enjoyed and would like to bring our readers’ attention to.
The Colored Lens is available both here online, and in ebook format. We hope you enjoy our pages.
