The Interstitial Arts Foundation has launched a crowdfunding campaign for its journal Interfictions, devoted to "the weird, the interstitial, and the uncategorizable."
The campaign features rewards from the likes of China Mieville and Kevin Brockmeier, prints by Terri Windling, manuscript critique by bestselling novelist Holly Black, and two exclusive e-chapbooks with work donated by more than 40 interstitial artists including Kelly Link, Peter Straub, Jeff VanderMeer, N.K. Jemisin, Lisa Snellings, Jeffrey Ford, Jane Yolen, Nalo Hopkinson. They're looking to raise $8.5K. I'm in.
