A couple of days ago I kind of stumbled upon http://fanfictionreviews2012.freeforums.org
, a forum for fanfics reviews, while googling something related. What's awesome is that most of the fics highlighted in the 'Fiction' section are femslash, alt/uber, or f/f original fics. While it's a little light on the "review" end (usually the posts are story descriptions and a link to the story) it's become a nice curated listing of works across several archives.
The forum looks to be well-moderated (no spam, for one) and the fic rec section looks pretty active, with a post every few days, which is a plus. The fiction recs section has a lot of posts by Norsebard and Lori (not sure if this Lori is Lori L Lake?), whose names I recognize from updates on RAOB. Kudos to them and all the others for posting so often! :) Some of the stories are works that are quite familiar if you've been reading RAOB / xenafiction.net fics for a while, while others are new to me, which is exciting.
Posting alt/uber fic recs on LJ used to be leavethesky
's domain, but she hasn't been posting very much recently, so if you are/were interested in that sort of thing you might want to check the forum out. :) It looks like there's also some DWP fic recs too.
To be quite honest, my own alt/uber fic recs tended to be responses to whatever theme leavethesky
was writing about at the time, and the reason why I started the Notables list was so that I could keep track of what I had written to people about. lol The concept has evolved into more of a curated list, but my original section still remains quite limited and fragmentary. Hope you enjoy the reads! :)
Update: Seen in the forums - Free ebook: Photographs of Claudia by KG MacGregor
- Apparently Bella Books is giving away this book for free for a limited time. Download Formats: PDF, mobi, and epub. Getting it was fairly hassle-less. You can sign in as guest and put anything in the customer form, and the code worked by making it free! :)
I liked it (I finished it in about 2 hours), though I think some of the concepts could be fleshed out a little more (I wanted more :D). Since it's put out in printed format, I understand limiting the page numbers to keep the cost of the book low, though. :)
