Cyber-Psychos AOD (CPAOD) is a book and magazine publishing venture based in Denver, Colorado, focusing on avant-garde and unusual art, culture, and writings. Founded in 1992 (magazine), and 1995 (CPAOD Books) by Jasmine Sailing, it has released 10 books and 10 issues of the magazine. The magazine's unabbreviated title is Cyber-Psychos And Other Diversities, with a subtitle of "The Magazine of Mental Aberrations".
As stated by Ms. Sailing: "Horror, cyber-tech, science fiction, dark fantasy, surrealism, anything pleasantly insane. Please avoid sending straight-forward genre material, I only list these as an example of the general vicinities that might interest me. I have no problem with printing controversial material, in fact I heart it. My main prerogative is that the submission should be intelligent and capable of making people think."
