    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.

    Interstitial Visual Arts Links
    Kendrick Goss

    Is it painting or jewelry making? Is it sculpture or photography? Many visual artists find frustration in categories. The only thing their works have in common is that they defy easy description. The links below represent a fraction of the artists brought to my attention by members of the Interstitial Arts Foundation. In choosing these links, I sought to assemble a group of artists ranging from the subtle to the outrageous, from the understandable to the absurd, from the more easily classifiable to the seemingly indefinable. Each of these artists uses materials, subjects, and/or genre motifs in unconventional — and Interstitial — ways. Rather than attempt to define boundaries, I hoped to show how vast the landscape is. The list will grow and, I am sure, surprise us. I hope these web links and the works found therein will serve as inspiration (and encouragement) to artists and art lovers of every feather.

    Andreas Zadora
    A fine jeweler who creates amazing interactive ... spectacles, for lack of a better word, from precious metals and gems. They include a mechanical fish that actually swims and a platinum dragonfly that hovers.

    Dave McKean
    Fantastical, surreal, disturbing and serene (all at once) works of digital collage and photography.

    Lisa Snellings
    Neil Gaiman mentions Lisa Snelling's work as a frequent source of inspiration in the introduction to Smoke and Mirrors. Sculpture, I suppose, but so much more. Descriptive, strange and frenetic.

    Helena Nelson Reed
    Watercolor painting that leaps the boundary between personal imagery and commercial illustration. Mythical images with the luminosity of stained glass.

    Connie Toebe
    Dioramas that seem to be created by a surrealist Jane Austen. Highly inventive works which achieve mysterious degrees of depth. Sometimes two-dimensional, always three-dimensional.

    Greg Spalenka
    Showing a multitude of influences, these multi–media creations are personally engaging but retain commercial appeal.

    Beckie Kravetz
    Beckie Kravetz regularly crosses the borders between sculpture and mask work; fine art, "commercial art" (for the theater), and craftwork; the visual and the performance arts (especially opera).

    Tabitha Vevers
    Dreamlike images recall Magritte, Medieval illumination, the Italian Renaissance, and the Symbolists.

    Nicholas Miles Kahn and Richard Selesnick
    Weird and wonderful "photographs" of places that don't really exist. Mystical, panoramic, and beautiful.

    Glen Baxter
    An Interstitial mix of art and comics and illustration.

    R.E. Brown
    R. E. Brown describes himself as a "Mad prince clown, violent coward and conspirator, forever doomed to stick the proverbial fork into life's toaster." Enough said. A very Interstitial experience.
