All Members , Moderated
Welcome! You've reached the 19th century adventure fiction community. It's a fairly broad genre that includes proto-science fiction, fantasy, pulp, and even fairy tales. Emcompassing a tradition begun in the 1850s and running through the 1940s, its influence on popular culture is widely seen.

Feel free to discuss books you're reading, film and comic adaptations, post illustrations, graphics, fanfiction, original fiction, or general musings.

There is only one rule, and that is to show courtesy and respect to your fellow members. (This means cut tags where appropriate.)
