From the Cafe Irreal guidelines:

The Cafe Irreal is a quarterly webzine that presents a kind of fantastic fiction infrequently published in English. As a type of fiction it rejects the tendency to portray people and places realistically and the need for a full resolution to the story; instead, it shows us a reality constantly being undermined. Therefore, we're interested in stories by writers who write about what they don't know, take us places we couldn't possibly go, and don't try to make us care about the characters.
