The Crossroads of the Aether
Welcome to Scribblers' Den, the online tavern where authors of the ~punk genres can meet to share concepts and philosophies of The Craft in the hope that these conversations will provide the fertile ground that will give rise to tomorrow's incredible ideas. You needn't be a famous author, nor even a published one to be a member. You need only be serious. This group is not about exclusion nor limitations, in fact it has only one rule: No personal attacks on a fellow member for expressing his or her own opinion. Violation of that axiom will get you thrown out of here so fast it will leave you with whiplash, and this is the only warning that will be given. So pull up a chair, order a round, and put your wares on the table. This is the place where imaginations fly!
