I am fascinated by a genre I have only just discovered.
What an amazingly cool name! But the problem with it is this: the slipstream writers and fans are falling into the trap of refusing to define what slipstream means as a genre. As I understand it, slipstream seems to be a post-modern surrealism. That’s what it looks like to me, at any rate. That said, a genre that refuses to define itself may be destined to disappear.
So, how would I define my writings? Horror and dark fantasy (leaning towards horror), predominately. I have also written some science fiction, and I would retro-define some of my work (“Pyramids”) as slipstream.
Your thoughts on the matter would be welcome!
