    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.

    On November 10, 2009, Cecil Castellucci and Elizabeth Ziemska co-hosted an Interfictions 2 event at M Bar, an intimate, lush supper club in Hollywood, complete with red velvet curtains, tufted red leather booths, and a baby grand piano.

    Veteran theater director Flynt Esquerra assembled a wonderful cast of actors including Dave Foley, Kimberly Huie, Rasika Mathur, Patty Cornell, Darcy Martin, Joseph Beck and Jason Van Over who performed selections from Cecil Castellucci‘s “The Long and Short of Long-Term Memory,” with Cecil performing the role of Heidi; Brian Francis Slattery‘s “Interviews after the Revolution”, with Rasika Mathur performing all the parts (including all the male voices!) to hilarious and brilliant effect, causing several Hollywood-types in the audience to whisper “Who is she? She’d be a great actress in an indie movie…”; Ray Vukcevich‘s “The Two of Me”; Peter M. Ball‘s “Black Dog”; Nin Andrews‘ “The Marriage”; Stephanie Shaw‘s “Afterbirth”; and Elizabeth Ziemska‘s “Count Poniatowski and the Beautiful Chicken,” with Elizabeth performing the role of the daughter and the narrator. Jonathan Stearns provided piano accompaniment to the performances.

    (Author’s note: the first picture below, due to the photographer moving the camera while taking the shot, features a strong resemblance to Francis Bacon’s Study after Velazquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X.)
