TorDot: What's it all about?

A week+ ago I mentioned that everyone should sign up for our "new project." We were being a little quiet about what the project is since it keeps evolving as we are working on it. This article on Bloggasm, however, basically says it...

"Tor Books, a major science fiction and fantasy publisher, announced recently that it would offer free weekly ebooks of its print titles if you sign up for its email newsletter. But this is just part of a larger online expansion that will include social networking and the publication of original short fiction and nonfiction....it's intended to be a "go-to site, a central community" for science fiction and fantasy fans."

I will add that the commissioned fiction will be accompanied by commissioned
artwork and we are working gallery section that will contain portfolios for 100 artists. This wont be the kind of peer-to-peer workshop site that ConceptArt.org and CgSociety is, but it will be a place for fans and art directors to get a taste of an artist's work and then link into the artists' sites.

hope the Tor web servers can handle the torrents of geeks signing up for the MyFace of the sci-fi world.

Well this is all very exciting. It will be great to peruse all the portfolios and who doesn't want free books.

I like a game which you need use flyff penya to play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow flyff moneyto you. When you have flyff gold, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy flyff penya. If you have enough cheap penya, you will be able to different games.

Do you like playing the game where you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.

Once I played Aion, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have [url=http://www.gameim.com/product/Aion_Gold.html]aion kina[/url]. He gave me some [url=http://www.gameim.com/product/Aion_Gold.html]aion online kina[/url], he said that I could [url=http://www.gameim.com/product/Aion_Gold.html]buy aion kina[/url], but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some [url=http://www.gameim.com/product/Aion_Gold.html]aion gold[/url], if I did not continue to play it, I can sell [url=http://www.gameim.com/product/Aion_Gold.html]cheap aion kina[/url] to anyone who want.
