    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. Now our work begins in earnest. We will […]

    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. With the publication […]

    Over the years, the IAF and its fellow travelers have produced several podcast projects, which you can find linked below.


    Will Ludwigsen’s story “Remembrance Is Something Like A House,” originally published in the IAF’s 2009 anthology Interfictions 2, is now available as a free podcast from PodCastle, read by Wilson Fowlie. It has the distinction of being chosen as the 100th episode for Podcastle! As Rachel Swirsky explains in her introduction, “This smart, surreal piece was one of my favorites in 2009.”



    interfictions_podcastAt Readercon 2007, Joy Marchand, Michael J. DeLuca, Vandana Singh, K. Tempest Bradford and Catherynne M. Valente recorded teasers of their stories to accompany the launch of the IAF’s first Interfictions anthology. The resulting five free tracks can be found on iTunes here, or at the following links:

    Interfictions author Matthew Cheney recorded a reading of his contribution, “A Map of the Everywhere”, and released it under a Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 CC License. Small Beer Press quoted Cheney as follows:

    I’ve been meaning for a while to record a reading of my story “A Map of the Everywhere”, first published in Interfictions, because when I’ve done a reading of the story, the response has often been somewhat different from the response to the text on the page – many people have told me they hadn’t realized the story was humorous until I read it aloud. Here, then, is an mp3 of me reading the story. It’s not particularly high quality – the microphone I have is one step up from something in a Cracker Jack box. I’m also a better reader with an audience. And there are some glitches in the first minute or two. But for what it’s worth, here is “A Map of the Everywhere”.
