Unashamedly elitist science fiction
Posting Access:
All Members
For discussions of science fiction, with a special emphasis on stuff that is a little off the beaten track.

Any posts that appear to be by members promoting their own books (or movies, or whatever) will be deleted, and persistent offenders will be banned. This is not a writers' workshop or a place to promote your own work. On the other hand I have no problems with promotion of other communities as long as they’re reasonably relevant.

There's only one real rule here - no political discussions of any kind. Politics has killed too many online groups.

This community is maintained by dfordoom.
