There are various definitions of this. The first link in the section below offers theory heavy pieces of auto-fiction or another term for Hysterical Realism before going on to give a long-winded definition. It does not seem entirely clear what it is but one possible definition is a work of theory (literary, social, technological, environmental, cultural…) written as a work of fiction.

One of its precursors is Jean Baudrillard. One of its main exponents is Reza Negarestani. No-one seems entirely sure where it is going.
