fading fiction sites redux

Three weeks ago, I wondered about the disappearing transgender fiction Web sites fictionmania and Crystal's Story Site.

A couple of days later, Stacy Jacobson e-mailed me about what she had learned about the disappearance. Immediately thereafter, her e-mail was lost in the clutter known as "The Femulate Archives" and I just found it today.

I apologize to Stacy for the delay in posting her reply. The pertinent parts follow:

I found the note below on the Big Closet:

Fictionmania has been offline for a long time now and it looks like it will remain that way for sometime [sic].

Crystal is working hard on rebuilding her site and will not update until she is done. Last update was 10/14/2008. She has a ton of stories backed up in her queue and I mean a ton!

She'll have her work cut out trying to get them posted, but she'll do it eventually.


  1. Again, the FM email list is your friend. As of this weekend, work on the new FM server is almost complete. The Task Force have asked that everyone be a little more patient, but once the site is online again, it will be accessible both through the original URL, as well as a new one,

  2. Jaye -- Thank you for the update.

  3. Staci Lana, looks like Storysite was updated yesterday.

  4. Jaye -- Thank you for the good news!
