  1. alt.fan.eddings newsgroup
  2. IRC #eddings
  3. Web pages
  4. The Recommended Fantasy Author List
  1. alt.fan.eddings newsgroup

    Home of Eddings fanatics worldwide. First appeared in the early 1990s, and if anyone knows the actual date it was created, let me know. (I know I started reading regularly in January, 1993, and it had already been around for a while then). A comfortable newsgroup with moderate traffic (usually around 20-30 messages a day, depending on the time of year, whether a new book has come out recently, and the level of spam on the Net) - feel free to drop in and join us.

  2. IRC #eddings

    Thanks in large part to the efforts of Ian Hutcherson and Rumor, we now have our own channel on IRC. #Eddings channels are certainly welcome to be formed on any net, but the one that seems to be the unofficial one is on Espernet. I'll include a list of the servers as soon as I get the information from Rumor. The unofficial meeting time that seems to work for most interested people is Friday and/or Saturday, about 7pm-9pm Eastern (USA) Standard Time, 12am-2am Greenwich Standard Time, but feel free to check in anytime.

  3. Web pages
