Dudes and dudettes, we are so excited: Symbolia is now available on Kindle Fire.
The Kindle Fire editions of Symbolia feature a panel-by-panel reading experience that makes you a part of the story. We think it’s pretty slick.
Don’t delay! Here’s what’s available today:
How We Survive: Our double-sized preview edition features stories on Zambian rock stars, California’s Salton Sea, theories of evolution from the Lower Congo River, and more. This issue is free and available here.
We Don’t Belong: Learn firsthand about the impact of deportation from a family torn apart, discover the weird, rebellious, and conspiratorial world of third party politics in the United States, and meet a Dalit Christian pastor fighting for equality in India. Available here.
The Mating Ritual: What happens when love meets science? Insect organs, love robots and non-traditional relationships populate this issue of Symbolia. Available here.
From here on out, every single issue of Symbolia will be published on iPad, via PDF, and on Kindle Fire. This is part of our long-term expansion strategy, which includes an Android app this summer. 
Single issues are available at Amazon.com for $2.99 a pop. Even better: You can still get our preview issue, How We Survive, for free. Get on over there and get downloading. Your support of Symbolia supports a new breed of multimedia storytelling. Thank you for being a part of our community!
Note: If you currently have a PDF subscription and would like to transfer over to Kindle Fire, please email admin@symboliamag.com. We’re happy to make the change.

You should buy this, it is SO good!
