Frequently Asked Questions
1. Q: Do you know who is the author of "XYZ"? I'm
looking for a story about so and so. Do you know what the
title is or who the author is?
A: I've read hundreds of stories, and unfortunately most of
them get jumbled together in my head. If I've read the
story you're looking for, I either don't remember reading
it or I can't remember the title/author either. Sorry, but
I have a very bad memory. My best advice is to do a search
on your favorite search engine.
2. Q: I've written a short story. Can you publish it on
A: This site deals only with "classic" stories. Meaning
those that have fallen into the public domain. These are
stories written before 1923. There are, however, many
online "zines" that will gladly publish stories by aspiring
writers. Look for them on Yahoo or Google.
3. Q: I've written a short story. Can you read it and
comment on it?
A: Sorry. This isn't really the forum for reviewing
aspiring author's work. If you are serious about getting
feedback on your material, visit the newsgroup
"alt.fiction.original". They comment on everybody's work
who posts and can be a great source of help.
4. Q: Why don't you add stories by Stephen King, or Ramsey
Campbell, or Robert Bloch, etc?
A: These authors are modern day storytellers. They are
alive and well, and as such, own the copyright to their own
work. Publishing it without their permission is a big
5. Q: (Not exactly a question) I know of a story that
should belong in your collection.
A: Great! Tell me what it is, or if you actually have it in
digital format let me know through email.
