The Eightfold Wiki is your guide to the characters, places, events, and award-winning stories of the Eightfold Universe.
So What's the Eightfold Universe?Edit
Eightfold is an online shared fiction universe whose primary home is at the USENET newsgroup rec.arts.comics.creative. Some of the Eightfold stories have also been published in book form-- Tom Russell's Jolt City and Seven Romances.
Like most of the RACC imprints, the Eightfold Universe has more than its fair share of colourful costumed adventurers engaged in various feats of daring-do. But Eightfold isn't just a superhero universe; horror stories, westerns, romances, experimental fiction, and ASCII comics are all a part of the Eightfold tapestry.
If there is one unifying concept behind the setting, it's quality-- editors/founders/what-have-you-ers Jamie Rosen and Tom Russell are dedicated to just telling plain damn good stories, and want you to do the same. If you'd like to contibute to Eightfold, you can e-mail Tom at joltcity at gmail dot com. Or, if you just want to find out more about this crazy place and the people in, poke your nose around this little corner of the internet, for all will be revealed...
