    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.

  • ≡ New York City: Nov. 6, 2009

    On November 6, 2009, the Interfictions 2 launch event tour rolled into New York City! From 7PM until late, the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Crosby Street was taken over by the IAF.

    Jeffrey Ford kicked things off with a reading from his Interfictions 2 short story “The War Between Heaven and Hell Wallpaper”, followed by K. Tempest Bradford reading from her piece from Interfictions 1, “Black Feather”. Veronica Schanoes came next with a reading from her Interfictions 1 contribution “Rats”, then Alaya Dawn Johnson read from her Interfictions 2 piece “The Score”. Apart from the readers themselves, there were two actors: Jessa Rowan was one of the readers on Alaya’s story and also read Genevieve Valentine’s story. Cory Antiel was another of the readers on Alaya’s story and also read from Carlos Hernandez’s story.

    Lively musical accompaniment was provided by local musicians Brian Wecht (keys, sax, clarinet), Jeremy Goddard (keys), John Pinamonti (guitar), Nate Landau (bass), and Charlie Shaw (drums), conducted by Brian Francis Slattery (himself a contributor to Interfictions 2 with his piece “Interviews After the Revolution”).

    The event was a roaring success, playing to a standing-room-only, fully-packed house of between 50 and 70 people – including a woman all the way from Boston University, who came to make a video of the event to use in her thesis on improvisational music!
