    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.

  • Support Polyphony 7
    by Erin | February 21st, 2010 |

    The Polyphony series by Wheatland Press was “conceived as a short fiction venue for stories that would skate gracefully across the boundaries of science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, and literary fiction.” Since it first debuted in 2002, the series has featured spectacular genre-crossing fiction by over 100 talented, award-winning writers, including Interfictions authors Jeffrey Ford (Polyphony 3), Vandana Singh (Polyphony 1 and 3), Ray Vukcevich (Polyphony 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6), Anna Tambour (Polyphony 6), Alan DeNiro (Polyphony 3), Mikal Trimm (Polyphony 7), Theodora Goss (Polyphony 2, 4, and 5), David J. Schwartz (Polyphony 6 and 7) and Leslie What (Polyphony 1 and 5), and Interfictions‘ publisher, Small Beer Press’ Gavin Grant (Polyphony 4).

    The release of Polyphony 7, the next volume in this series, is in danger of not being produced because of the economic crisis unless Wheatland Press can generate 225 preorders by March 1, 2010. This is a wonderful series packed full of engaging interstitial fiction that we think you will enjoy since so many of the Polyphony writers and editors are also friends and supporters of the IAF. It will be a blow to interstitial fiction and to the interstitial community if this series is lost.

    Help save Polyphony 7 by placing your preorder by March 1st. More information about Wheatland Press and the production of Polyphony 7 is available on Wheatland’s blog. Thank you for helping us to support interstitial art in all of its forms!

      I pre-ordered my copy this afternoon. After seeing the lineup from their previous editions, I’m tempted to go buy those too – but I really want to keep the series going so I can submit to it myself!
