ABC - Authors, Books, and Chat or Comments about Books We Love; Books We Hate; Books We Write; Books We'd Like To Write; Books We Wish Others Would Write: A discussion about books of all kinds, concentrating on but not limited to our own libraries and including new, mainstream and non-mainstream, in- and out-of-print, rare, antique, signed and unsigned, fiction and non-fiction. Of special interest are published contributors, and those who wish to be.

All discussion of the creative and creation side of books is particularly valuable.
