You're welcome to come check out my WordPress blog, Tantra's Genre Fiction. Even though this Experimental website gets several hundred hits a day, which I'm very grateful for, I focus more on writing Genre fiction, such as Speculative (SFF and Horror.) That's one reason my posts here are so short.
My personal resonance is even more with the Interstitial Genres. I categorize a lot of my stories with links into Slipstream, Magical Realism, Surrealism, New Wave Fabulism, and the Weird Here.
I created the Genre blog for people who want to read my writing but aren't familiar with, or used to, Innovative Literary styles. I fully understand that people used to Speculative and others such as Thrillers, Mysteries, and Suspense would be bewildered by the quirky explorations I publish in magazines. But that's OK. They can bypass that and find links to my relatively pure SF, Paranormal Fantasy, and Weird Horror, and if they are WordPressers themselves, follow it. Comments would be interesting.
While the pieces I post about could all be labeled with the major categories, they could sometimes also be called something else, like Weird, which is something I love to write. Some are cross-genre. My longer narratives coming up all have Genre elements, but they all push the limits toward exploration to come degree. Predictable conventions may be great for getting masses to buy books, but I like entertaining the other people too.
In the blog, I also post other things of interest in Genre writers and readers, related to submitting, publishing, defining, edges and overlaps of genres and sub-genres, true crime, reviews, advanced SF-like technology, etc. It already has a reasonable number of followers, and as that grows, I will welcome guest posts.
Secret in the Desert
"We have no intention to try to pinpoint a concrete definition of magical realism or of slipstream. These terms are slippery, much like our amphibious mascot. And though some might contend that the term “magical realism” applies only to a particular time and place in the geopolitical landscape of the literary world, we’re interested in continuing the legacy of those writers by providing a beautiful, completely bilingual magazine to publish both established and emerging writers that share our love for magical realism and its various iterations. We love the absurd, the surreal, and everything in between."
