    Thanks to 277 generous backers for our Interfictions Indiegogo Campaign, we raised $10,318 by the time our campaign ended at midnight, July 14th, 2014.  When we launched on June 3rd, we were staggered to find donations doubling almost daily, until after about 3 weeks we had reached our original target goal of $8,500, and were able to move on to our Stretch Goal of $10,000.

    Which means we not only get to publish Interfictions Online for another year, but we can pay our contributors at higher rates now, rates more in line with the effort and talent that innovation requires. Thank you, each and every one of the 277 generous donors who stepped forward to say that interstitial art is valued and valuable. The number of people is as important as the number of dollars raised. We are awed by your generosity.

    INTERFICTIONS issue #3 is up online!

    The editors of Interfictions Online are happy to announce the birth of the journal’s latest issue, on May 22, 2014!

    The Spring 2014 issue’s non-fiction offerings include Mark Craddock’s poignant collage in Aerial Acrobatics and Gender Reassignment Surgery – A How-To Guide, while Inda Lauryn’s Parallels and Transitions splices analysis of contemporary female vocalists into a graduate school memoir. Isabel Yap’s Life Is Not a Shoujo Manga speaks for itself. And in an interview with Jeff VanderMeer and Jeremy Zerfoss, the two creators discuss their illustrated guide to writing, Wonderbook.

    The fiction offerings remix tropes from ghosts to automata, with new work by Richard Butner, Su-Yee Lin, Kat Howard, Tade Thompson and S. Craig Renfroe Jr.

    Several of the poems in this issue reimagine older narratives: Sridala Swami’s AI Winter draws on the Mahabharata, Sonya Taaffe’s Double Business on Hamlet, and Mary Alexandra Agner’s Hypothesis Between Your Ribs on the brief life of Charles Darwin’s daughter.

    Interfictions: Press

    Since the publication of Interfictions, the book has been receiving some glowing attention in the press. Here are a few of our favorite clippings so far.

    David Soyka, Strange Horizons, July 25, 2007

    "In the final analysis, of course, it doesn't much matter what the hell you call it. As the editors suggest, if you care, you'll know something is interstitial when you read it. And at least it will give you something to argue about if you're one of those people who hang around in the blogosphere and don't have to do things like go to work or raise kids, or you're an academic, and have a lot time on your hands. Putting the 'what the hell is interstitial?' question aside for the moment, this is a very nice collection of strange stories."

    Matt DeNault, BSC Review, October 23, 2007

    "Pragmatically, however – and interstitiality is first and foremost a movement born of pragmatism – right now there are gaps in genre categories, gaps in how people understand the difference between genres and marketing categories. Interstitial fiction is important because it can both point out and fill in these gaps. While the somewhat limited thematic scope of this initial Interfictions volume works against it as a manifesto, celebration or sampler of interstitiality – in some ways even as a collection of fiction &$150; readers willing to savour the stories of Interfictions individually will find their expectations largely met, and likely at times exceeded."

    How to Order Interfictions

    Interfictions is currently available from Small Beer Press, Powell's, (in both print and Kindle editions) and at fine booksellers everywhere. A preview of Interfictions can also be found on Google Books.
