~~On behalf of Stephen R. Donaldson, G. P. Putnam's Sons, Orion Publishing and the UMCP site design team I am more than proud to announce the GRAND OPENING of~~~The Official Stephen R. Donaldson Website!~~http://www.stephenrdonaldson.com/!!!!

Remember the site is just a baby, I must admit it sure looks sweet, but it will continue to grow and grow. Fantastic info on the author and some amazing interviews I guarantee you've never seen before. Did I mention it has an incredible message board too? I think it's called Kevin's Watch or something... Confused

Please keep that cover art coming! We're still compiling it and SRD is in the process of sorting out copyright (so you probably won't see them for a couple of weeks, at least--to submit send to: johnf@eccker.org ). Use the above addy or link for now-I'm sure Vain will set up a "master link" on the index as soon as he finds out about all this! Very Happy

It's a little slow loading... I mean, almost all of it's up, but after three minutes (and counting) I still have a large black square in the middle of the page...


[Edit - okay, in the end it took at least 6 minutes for that little animated bit about the third chrons to load, on a 56.6K modem]

It has to be slow--it just barely linked to the net--it has 5 domains pointing towards it-- the more we visit the faster it will be! Loopy in the Sky with Diamonds (We are working on the Flash Player to load quicker...)

Very nice. I LOVE the video. Kick-ass. I'm surprised Mr Donaldson has gone so long without an official website. Regardless, it's nice to see such a good-looking one opened now.

OMG! It's just like when you go to the movies and see a really, really, really cool preview, but without the deep-voiced man.

That is so kewl. *Gasp* How can I wait until it comes out? *Hack* What am I going to do until then? *Pant* I think I need to go and lie down.

Hi, Duchess, maybe your browser is missing the necessary plug-in to view the animation?

That preview is the kind of thing that...um...SETS SRD FANDOM ON FIRE!!!

Seriously, it is so excellent to see things fall into place rapidly like this!

Just spent the last couple of hours at the site poring over all the collected SRD interviews there...my head is spinning from the man's insights about his work and himself as a writer...should be URGENT reading for anyone who wants to understand SRD's views about the world a little better.

Mr. Brian Stableford's essay on SRD is also very insightful.
