“Appearances” is the name of the space where you, viewer, listener, reader, can hear and see some of the things that we — and you — either have or have never heard or seen before. You cannot use this space to view or listen to those things that you (or we) will (or may) later see (or hear); such are the limitations of the magic of the still image and the recorded voice. Now, do you or do you not remember the following events, which took place in the not-too-distant past?

Caketrain is a literary journal and press based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our interest is in bringing you, reader, the very best in contemporary creative writing, full stop. Our goals are for each issue of our journal to submerge you in a birthing tank for gelatinous language monsters, young masses of tentacular foci undulating as directed (in all, at once) by our eclectic stable of contributors; for each new book we publish to seduce and ensnare you, sometimes intangibly, always undeniably; and for you, reader, to be able to draw at least one passage from our banks that prods your mind with such precision and power that it feels as if it was written for your eyes alone. To wit and to whet, here is a snippet, a slight nip of our delicious lit mix:
