1.    What is Shadowdark.org about? 

It really is not about any one thing. It is about all the shadowy and dark places in speculative fiction. At least we started out with speculative fiction … we might add other genres. We do have a mission to encourage others to publish their SF to the web.

2.    Shadowdark.org looks like just a bunch of parts all on one server, do you have a plan? 

No. Well, maybe. Um, no, we had a plan but we lost it. 🙂 Now we just put a bunch of non-commercial sites on this domain because it has lots of disk space on the server.

3.    Are all sites owned by or run by the same person? 

No, some sites are owned by other people and we host them.

4.    Will you host my website? 

Sorry, hosting is by invitation only.

5.    Did Shadowdark.org used to have a news service? 

Yes we started out with a Content Management System running a self serve SF press release service. Unfortunately, it became too expensive in both money and time to operate.

6.    Why are your pages so ugly? 

Heh, heh. Well partly because I do not have a lot of skill with HTML. And also partly because I think the content should carry the site not slick looking pages.
