So what is slipstream, anyway?

John Joseph Adams asks James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel "So what is slipstream, anyway?"

From a while ago I think, Christopher Priest lists his top ten slipstream novels in the Guardian.


I'm a bit dubious of SF subgenres to be honest. Definitions and SF have always been a slippery combination and subgenres just seem to be an overcomplication to me.

Yes, I guess the only use is trying to describe what a book/film is like.
