Gag sf literary movement: INFERNOKRUSHER!

Ever since cyberpunk, science fiction aficionados have been trying to cook up a new literary movement for the genre. We've had steampunk, slipstream, new weird, mundane sf, and so on and so forth (I think we should all call ourselves "the craphounds," personally).

Now a gang of writers have cooked up a magnificent piss-take on this. They've conceived of a new literary sf movement called Infernokrusher ("We should be drawing names less from wishy-washy words (slip, stream) and more from monster trucks (krusher, inferno).").

On Making Light, Patrick Nielsen Hayden has collected links and choice quotes from the Infernokrusher movement. It's an enormous sf in-joke, but man, it had me convulsed with laughter:

Infernokrusher fiction explodes stagnant genre conventions, e.g., that it's not okay to have all your characters run over by a monster truck in what would seem to be the middle of the story

While other attitudes to art yearn to communicate truths, to move people, to challenge, or to entertain, infernokrusher art wants to blow stuff up
