    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.

  • Cool Things: Book View Cafe
    by Elizabeth | December 21st, 2008 |

    Writer Anne Harris got in touch recently to let us know about a very cool new project, Book View Cafe:

    I’m pleased to invite you to a new website where more than twenty professional authors are experimenting with new publishing paradigms and taking advantage of the internet’s many resources in order to bring our work directly to readers online. It’s called Book View Cafe:

    This project started six months ago as a discussion on a pro women sf/f writers list, and we’ve been working hard on it ever since. Much of what is offered on Book View Cafe is free, over time, some authors will offer some of their work for a fee. Book View Cafe includes romance, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, young adult, and horror, and more genres are likely to appear as we grow and explore.

    We are: Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Brenda Clough, Kate Daniel, Jessica Freely, Laura Anne Gilman, Christie Golden, Anne Harris, Sylvia Kelso, Katharine Eliska Kimbriel, Sue Lange, Ursula K. Le Guin, Rebecca Lickiss, Vonda N. McIntyre, Nancy Jane Moore, Pati Nagle, Darcy Pattison, Irene Radford, Madeleine Robins, Amy Sterling, Jennifer Stevenson, Susan Wright, and Sarah Zettel.

    We hope you will come and browse our website, read our stories, and give us feedback.

    The Cafe ladies are up to great things already, including a presentation at the Library of Congress next year. Yow!
