"Buy this book."

That's reviewer Sean Melican's prescription for Interfictions in the newest issue of Ideomancer. "Various editors attempting to collect and define slipstream, or fabulist, fiction fall into the trap of simply clothing genre fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror) with a new term, not for the sake of defining or inventing a new genre, but attempting to make genre palatable to mainstream readers, writers, and critics. But ... Interfictions is the most successful anthology thus far, both defining its terms and presenting stories that function on those terms."
