tbp.sign.small.jpg (20334 bytes)Way back in 1996 on the TSA-TALK mailing list a small story called 'Tales of the Blind Pig' was written by one Mark van Sciver.  He'd asked interested persons on the list for themselves as characters, and then he wrote a bar to set them in.  And he introduced SCABS.

Time passed.  People started writing stories, first within the bar, and then within the world it was in.  And it grew.

And grew and grew and...

There are now DEFINITELY over 300 stories spanning a period from the 17thC to 2002 and on to 2040.   And, since nobody else has, I'm going to try and create a public archive of them all.

This page contains the master archive organized by CHRONOLOGICAL.  If you want to read the introductory notes for the new writer and the core stories that REALLY should be read to get a feel for the universe, then you want the INTRODUCTION.  There is also an AUTHOR index.  Note that there are stories in the AUTHOR index that are NOT in the CHRONOLOGICAL index as I'm not sure where they fit -- any help would be appreciated.  Click on the appropriate link on the left to select your option.

Note: To the best of my ability I have maintained the author's format for their work.  The only change I've made is to the format of the title information and hard breaks within the text.  If I've changed anything, I apologize, accept full blame, and would like to know what I screwed up so that I can fix it.

Note: A number of authors have requested links on their web page.  Where such links exist (or are wanted) they're listed in the AUTHOR index.  Most authors would appreciate comments, and comments can be sent via the author link at the top of each story.  If there is no link, then they do not want their e-mail address publicly available.

WARNING: Various of these stories contain adult situations of sex and/or violence. If you're not an adult, then don't read them.  Where I know there are adult situations, the stories have been marked ADULT, however there are likely some I missed so read at your own risk.
