It was hard, hard, hard to choose these stories. We got a lot of good ones. In fact, we got so many, we decided to put up an online Annex of stories that we didn't want to get away. They'll appear in the weeks leading up to the publication of Interfictions 2 in November, not in the order they appear here:
Kelly Barnhill, "Four Very True Tales"
Kelly Cogswell, "For the Love of Carrots"
F. Brett Cox, "Nylon Seam"
Chris Kammerud, "Some Things About Love, Magic and Hair"
Eilis O'Neal, "Quiz"
Ronald Pasquariello, "The Chipper Dialogues"
Mark Rich, "Stonefield"
Genevieve Valentine, "To Set Before the King"
Thank you to everyone who submitted, and believe me when I say that a 200,000 word anthology (plus Annex) would not be sufficient to print all the stories Chris and I proposed to each other in our first pass "favorites list."
