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)[1] by Jasmine Sailing, it has released 10 books and 10 issues of the magazine.[2] The magazine's unabbreviated title is Cyber-Psychos And Other Diversities, with a subtitle of "The Magazine of Mental Aberrations".[3]

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."[4]

CPAOD was the sponsor of the Death Equinox conventions held in Denver in the late 1990s, also known as Cyber-Psycho Convergences".[5][6]
