I would place "slipstream" as a genre somewhere at the triangulation of fantasy sf, alternative history, and magic realism. Indeed, some filler material in this anthology consists of various blog commenters attempting to define the genre. Aimee Bender, an author I always enjoy, is represented here. I particularly liked Michael Chabon's "The God of Dark Laughter" and Benjamin Rosenbaum's "Biographical Notes to 'A Discourse on the Nature of Causality, with Air-Planes,' by Benjamin Rosenbaum," which never really gets around to the air-planes.
