The Round Thing has a focus on what many may consider alternative and controversial science. The magazine is looking to publish a collection of scientific articles interspersed with art and photography, as well as, fiction, poetry, essays and more. The idea is that a magazine with a variety of content types will have a wider audience and greater reader engagement. The Round Thing will publish material related to aliens and UFO, cryptozoology, the paranormal, space and time travel, scientific research as well as controversial ideas, theories and explanations.
To begin to address these topics the magazine is launching with four articles and a collection of poems and art works. We include an article by Anthony Judge from his Web site about transhumans. We have an article about transhumanism by Bateman and Gayon that was recently published in a French science journal and is now appearing in English for the first time. We have an article by Ivan Almar that was originally published in Hungarian and after submitting to The Round Thing was reviewed and revised to include further elaboration and illustrations by a colleague of his. The final article in this issue was submitted by Frolov from Faraday Lab and details some null results from a recent set of experiments involving antigravity.
In addition to the four scientific articles in this issue we have a collection of works of art and poetry we hope will broaden the scope of The Round Thing and enhance the reading experience. We have a drawing by Converse this displays an amorphous landscape and a figure connected to several beings beneath the surface linked by straw like tubes and strings. Reprogrammed is a poem by Hazelton this really a wonderful piece about the technological age and the poet coming to grips with a mobile device and the conveniences and frustrations that accompany it. Ed Coletti has two poems and a number of paintings in this issue including the cover image. His poems and paintings describe a world that is at once familiar and comfortable but at the same time stupefying and chaotic. Hart has a number of paintings presenting colorful images of nature entangled and entwined. We have a Photo of Glen Carr holding a painting titled Lavender-orange after the colors.
We have received a wonderful array of material and we look forward to getting more. We are interested in all aspects of science and technology as well as art, literature and poetry. Anyone who is interested will find the submission system is easy and simple. We welcome submission through the website or email. You are invited to send anything you wish and we will try to publish what we can.
