Interfictions: An Anthology of Interstitial Writing
Edited by Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss

“Odd, Deep, Delightful”
— Michael Bishop, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“This idea of playing with genre conventions is interstitiality’s charm and what makes it a movement for the hypertext age. We want words to do more now and for our time not to have been spent with just one idea.”
— Adrienne Martini, Baltimore City Paper

“Buy this book.”– Sean Melican, Ideomancer

“Playing outside the rules once again is Interfictions: An Anthology of Interstitial Writings (Interstitial Arts Foundation / Small Beer Press ; April 30, 2007 ; $18.00), edited by Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss. In this case, Small Beer Press is the distributor, which means, as I said above, they’re bringing the world this collection, while the publisher is the very interesting Interstitial Arts Foundation. The mission is pretty clear: publish stuff that falls between the cracks, that lies outside of any single and perhaps all genres. They call themselves Artists Without Borders, so expect to find literature, visual arts, music and performance arts. Their list of contributors on the website is pretty amazing; Ellen Kushner, Gregory Frost, Heinz Insu Fenkl and Eve Sweetser; all these just writing essays. There’s a lot to look at and more importantly read, and they seem to have chosen to publish on line the sort of material one can read online.”
— Rick Kleffel, the Agony Column
