    IAF INTERFICTIONS ONLINE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN ends above target goal

    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.

  • “Some Things About Love, Magic, and Hair” by Chris Kammerud: 7th Interfictions Annex story up online!
    by DeborahB | October 27th, 2009 |

    Welcome to the penultimate week of the IAF Annex! With only one week until the release of Interfictions 2, we’re proud to bring you “Some Things About Love, Magic, and Hair” by Chris Kammerud. This evocative interfiction prompts us to reflect on monsters and the liminality of experience:

    “The thing about Allison is she hated having her name sung to her but loved Elvis Costello. She hated unicorns, too, unless they were bad-ass unicorns that used their horns to impale enemies in the heart. Also, she had hair like the Jersey shore, thick and brown and full of broken glass, among other things. Seashells, gum wrappers, plastic shovels, the occasional condom or lost child. Parts of Allison existed in other dimensions. Her ankle moonlighted as a moonlit hill in one universe, her hip, a smooth fjord in another. She was half-magic, on her father’s side, if you believe her mother. If you believe in that sort of thing at all.”

    Read the entire piece now and make sure to return next week for “Quiz” by Eilis O’Neal, the final installment in our Annex. Tell your friends!
