    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.

  • Catherynne M. Valente and S.J. Tucker Live
    by Geoffrey | February 11th, 2009 |

    IAF Working Group member Catherynne M. Valente is celebrating the launch of her new novel Palimpsest with a multi-city tour of shows featuring Valente’s words and the music of S.J. “Sooj” Tucker. From the page for the Grand Launch Extravaganza in NYC:

    Between life and death, dreaming and waking, at the train stop beyond the end of the world is the city of Palimpsest. To get there is a miracle, a mystery, a gift, and a curse — a voyage permitted only to those who’ve always believed there’s another world than the one that meets the eye. Those fated to make the passage are marked forever by a map of that wondrous city tattooed on their flesh after a single orgasmic night.

    Palimpsest is a lush, decadent and evocative tale of a sexually transmitted city. By connecting through passion and desire, a new world opens.

    The world of Palimpsest is attached to our own, here and now — and so a group of extraordinary artists and performers have combined their efforts to bring Palimpsest to life.

    On Ash Wednesday, February 25th, the Brooklyn Lyceum will hold a portal to the world of Palimpsest. The evening will feature live music by S.J. Tucker, theatrical readings from Catherynne M. Valente’s upcoming urban fantasy novel, a rope suspension performance by Lee Harrington, and a host of performers from the burlesque to the avant-garde and back again.

    Bear witness to this unique event, dress to extravagance, experience the mystery…

    Other stops on the tour include:

    - Philadelphia, PA (Feb. 28)
    - Boston, MA (Mar. 7)
    - Cleveland, OH (Mar. 16)
    - Chicago, IL (Mar. 18)
    - New Orleans, LA (Mar. 21)

    Dates are still forthcoming for additional shows in Denver, St. Louis and perhaps Salt Lake City. Further details, including additional events and instructions as to how to buy tickets, can be found on Valente’s blog.
