PHANTOM DRIFT 5
Navigating the Slipstream
Cover Art: "The Offering"
by Paul Lewin
"The writer who navigates the slipstream well can take the reader headlong into the vast sea of disruption, a place that shakes us loose from the received ideas present in so much of "literary" and genre fiction. Like Ducornet's forest of the unknown, that sea of disruption seeks always to remind us that the best stories lead us into the dark complexities of life even while moves and TV forever push us into the false light of realism or the empty promise of the Freytag pyramid. The writer willing to navigate the slipstream may not make the New York Times bestseller list or be reviewed in the New York Review of Books. He is probably doomed to haunt the edges of the mainstream, shaking chains and banging shutters in hopes of catching the complete attention of even one believer, but he wouldn't have it any other way."
