The Interstitial Arts Foundation (promoting "art made in the interstices between genres and categories...disciplines, mediums, and cultures") is celebrating the anniversary of the release of the Interfictions Anthology
with a charity auction featuring jewelry made by Interfictioneers and inspired by the stories in Interfictions. This is a fascinating gang of science fiction/fantasy people who are really breaking new ground!
(Pictured: 'Willow Pattern' by Elise Matthesen, based on the story 'Willow Pattern' by Jon Singer.)
To celebrate the anniversary of Interfictions, we invited jewelers/beaders to create wearable art based on the 19 stories in our first original anthology. Come bid on some amazing pieces by many talented artists, including Elise Matthesen, JoSelle Vanderhooft – and Interfictions authors Leslie What, Rachel Pollack, and K. Tempest Bradford, who have created one-of-a-kind, collectible wearable interpretations of their own work!
New pieces go up every two days and auctions last for 4-7 days. Bid early and often–bids start as low as $10! All proceeds will go to supporting Interstitial Arts projects, including the second Interfictions volume, Interfictions 2, to be published in Fall 2009

With the iPhone headphone jack having gone by the wayside, we’re excited about the addition of the FRANKLIN Bluetooth Headphones in our store. These headphones are foldable so they’re easy to carry around, but most importantly, they pack impressive sound.
