Interfictions is the Interstitial Arts Foundation's anthology series showcasing short interstitial fiction.
Interfictions Zero: The Virtual Anthology of Interstitial Writing and Original Essays, edited by Delia Sherman and Helen Pilinovsky, is a rolling online anthology of interstitial criticism on interstitial texts. Every month, an original essay will go up on the Interstitial Arts Website, concerning some previously published piece of interstitial writing (hyperlinked where possible). The goal of Interfictions Zero is to begin to create a historical context for how interstitial writing affects the growth and development of various literary genres and to work towards a practical definition of Interstitiality.
