Crossed Genres Publications is a small press publisher of speculative fiction based in Framingham, Massachusetts.
CGP is the publisher of Crossed Genres Magazine. The zine works a bit differently than most magazines. Every month, a new genre is chosen as the Current Genre; for that month, all Fiction submissions must combine that genre with some aspect of Science Fiction or Fantasy. The magazine is free to read online, and it published in biannual anthologies (print and ebook).
CG Magazine was founded in September 2008; Issue #1 was released on December 1, 2008. After issue 36 was released, CG Magazine was closed down due to financial and time constraints. However, an amazingly successful Kickstarter campaign enabled CGP to bring back the magazine, now as a SFWA-level paying market.
In December 2010 Crossed Genres released its first novel, A Festival of Skeletons by New Zealand author RJ Astruc. It has since released the novel Broken Slate by Kelly Jennings; the collection Salsa Nocturna by Daniel José Older; and the anthologies Subversion: Science Fiction & Fantasy tales of challenging the norm and Fat Girl in a Strange Land.

Shay Darrach is happily married to a partner of 15 years, adored by a Pomeranian puppy, and ruled by a Basement Cat. The unlikely family makes their home in downtown Toronto, Ontario. By day, Shay writes help documentation for software, delights in finding undocumented “features”, and has been known to spread anti-productivity viruses of the mostly harmless kind. By night, Shay writes fiction, knits, and indulges in fannish things.
