No, it's the Russian/eastern european term for specfic. Clute championed it if I remember.

I like it very much. I'd definitely be up for saying that I write fantastika, rather than speculative fiction (I have the same reservations as you about specfic as a term, only I didn't realise what those reservations were until you wrote this!).

I dunno. Fantastika sounds like it should involve jazz hands.

Then I guess the reason I'm gung-ho for 'fantastika' is because my name is Jazz. :) I've never heard the term before, but I support it!
