  1. Perhaps it would be helpful to have the categories arranged chronologically given that the history of slipstream is that of an evolving definition.

    I notice the big black hole in the Nineties. Nothing actually happened before the internet, did it?

  2. Martin: cheers. The lists are more or less chronological — the most recent stuff is at the top of each category. Or did you mean something else?

    I notice the big black hole in the Nineties. Nothing actually happened before the internet, did it?

    Certainly nothing important.

    (More seriously, I almost included John Clute’s entries on ‘slipstream’ and ‘fabulation’ from the Encyclopedia despite their not being online, but I decided I wasn’t trying to create a definitive timeline … yet.)

  3. The lists are more or less chronological

    A bit more than less, now. Martin, can you give me a date for when you wrote your slipstream piece (as opposed to when you posted it)?

  4. More seriously, I almost included John Clute’s entries on ’slipstream’ and ‘fabulation’ from the Encyclopedia despite their not being online,

    I was thinking about that too. It will be interesting when the Third Edition of the Encyclopedia is published online if they will make any of the content freely available. There is possibly a case for locking author entries and the like but making critical terms public access.

    but I decided I wasn’t trying to create a definitive timeline … yet.

    You know you want to…

    Martin, can you give me a date for when you wrote your slipstream piece

    I think it was 2001 but I will have to check when I get home.

  5. You may want to consider the interstitial issue of the JFA – for example

    Andrew M Butler, ‘Between the “Deaths” of Science Fiction: A Skeptical View of the Possibility for Anti-Genres.’ Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts 15.3 (2004): 208-216.

  6. Wow! What a great collection of data.

    You might add links to reviews of Trampoline and Leviathan, if there are any indepth ones on the internet.

    But this is a great idea.

    Shame there is no such thing as slipstream. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Andrew: at the moment I’m sticking to online articles. But if I ever get the urge to compile the True And Complete History Of Slipstream (And Similar) Discussion, that issue will no doubt be on it …

    Jeff: Good call on Leviathan and Trampoline. I’ll have a proper look around for reviews of those later. I’ve also added your “Romantic Underground” piece, which seems not-entirely-irrelevant …

  8. Does anyone have a copy of the Carter Scholz interview from New Horizons #11 that Sterling mentioned in his article in Catscan? I’ve looked everywhere. Found copies of almost every single issue of New Horizons except for #11, and there doesn’t seem to be a copy of the interview anywhere on the internet. Would love to find a copy both for historical reasons and for personal interest. It definitely belongs here, if nowhere else. (I’m not sure what the copyright status would be.)

  9. What about Anne Cameron’s DREAMSPEAKER, or Nick Bantock (GRIFFIN AND SABINE series; THE VENETIAN’S WIFE; THE FORGETTING ROOM)? Are they slipstream, magic realism, or something else?
