The Oerth Saga is a free* novel distributed as weekly e-serial. The series itself consists of a sci-fantasy novel taking place on Oerth, a world populated by animals that walk on their hind legs and talk. Each week, no less than one chapter of each book will be posted to the list. As some of the chapters contain mature subjects and themes (PG or PG-13 material), the list is limited to age 18 and up, and all subscriptions to the list must be in the form of an e-mail request to email@example.com, stating the subscriber's name and age. Younger subscribers will be considered, with parental permission. Comments, questions, suggestions and general discussion about the serial is not only allowed, but encouraged. Flames and other hostile or off-topic posts, however, will not be tolerated, and will result in the member being unsubscribed. A website will be available, where comments, questions and reader art will be posted. Of course, the standard fiction disclaimers also apply to the novel itself, and all it's chapters: "This is a work of fiction. Any similarity to persons living or dead, characters real or imagined and places real or imagined is entirely coincidental."
* = Free. Yes, that means there is no charge. You pay nothing. Free. You recieve no less than a chapter a week by subscribing to an e-mail list, you can send e-mail to the list to talk about the chapters, the characters, plot threads... But you still pay nothing. Zero. Zip. Nada. What's the catch? You have to follow the rules above, and you have to request to subscribe.
