SF Citations for OED This site is maintained by Jesse Sheidlower, Editor at Large of the Oxford English Dictionary. The content side of things is handled by Jeff Prucher and Malcolm Farmer. The project grew out of regular work that was being done for the OED's reading programs. Briefly, research for the OED takes two main forms: general reading, in which a variety of texts are read for any interesting words that are encountered, and targeted research, in which particular terms are specifically analyzed. This can consist of doing searches in electronic databases, sending general researchers to a library to see what they can find, or asking specialists for help in their subject fields. The site was started under the guidance of Mike Christie, an OED volunteer, and Sue Surova, a freelance researcher for the OED. The site is run by Jesse Sheidlower; please direct any comments about the site's functionality or design to him.

The Thread Directory We here at Author Support have a common goal, and that goal is to support and help out any author that comes our way. A simple task often made to look complicated by the sheer number of threads and people we have. As it is our purpose to help any author with any conceivable problem, we have well over fifty threads*, all designed and fitted to specific purposes or services often required of authors. Of course, we can't help someone who isn't willing to help themselves, and no matter how easy we make it to find the information you need, some effort is required of you to at least find the information. Another purpose of our group, besides helping you as an author, is to be a friendly community to all who come our way. - slangs dictionary - slang meaning - acronym meanings and definitions SALT /fic/ - Fanfic Review & Creation Just dropping in to drop a quick advertisement. The Lunaverse is the largest collaborative universe on - while Fallout: Equestria may have more total stories and authors none of them necessarily connect to one another in the vein of a true series - they're almost entirely independent stories that contradict or trip over one another with no cohesion. Which is perfectly fine, but the Lunaverse is a little different: we're armed with Canon. That is to say, most stories in the Lunaverse connect in some way to an ongoing larger story in the Lunaverse. The basic premise of the Lunaverse is simple: 1,000 years ago, Celestia fell into greed and paranoia, becoming Corona, the Tyrant Sun. The Lunaverse's Season 1 is "complete," in that 22 of its 26 stories are finished, including all the ones important to the plot. Anyway, that's all the shilling I'll be doing. Happy reading!
