ergofiction: ezine for webfiction fans!

Other than the webfiction directories, there aren’t many places for readers of online fiction to hang out, with pickings being even more slim since the e-Fiction Book Club closed down. So I’m going to point you towards a venture that (I think) deserves everyone’s attention: Ergofiction.

You may remember the Café Wednesday interview with Jan Oda, who had just launched said online webfiction magazine back in December. I should have given her and Ergofiction a shout out before now, but it completely slipped my mind.

Thus: for the unaware, Ergofiction is an online magazine for the discussion and appreciation of webfiction. So far some general articles have been posted, such as why read webfiction and where to find it.

This past week has been a fun one: there’s been a crossword scavenger hunt! Each crossword is based off of the first three chapters of an online story, thus giving you a taste of what’s out there, and hopefully introducing you to something new.

Issue 1 will run from the 17th-23rd January, with the introductory post published sometime Sunday evening.

Thus, two things:

      If you want some recommendations, I’m happy to give them – just let me know what you prefer in terms of genre!

      There’s something for everyone really, from the ongoing serials for those who like reading in small chunks, to the already completed works you can devour in one gulp.

      The last review of mine, for that horror story, is actually freely available online.

    I’m so thrilled this opened up! I saw your link showing someone who was on Ergo Fiction visited my website, clicked on it to see who it was—and came across this wonderful, exciting website!

    Please let me be one of the first to say I love this idea of yours, have registered, and am eagerly awaiting more from you!

      Yay!

      But credit where credit is due: the idea is not mine, but Jan Oda’s (@janoda on twitter). I’m sure she’ll be equally as happy as I am to know how thrilled you are about it! :-)
