OpenLit Milestone and an Oort-Cloud.org First

Greetings, Terrestrials and Extras, we have an OpenLit milestone and an Oort-Cloud (and possibly a science-fiction/fantasy/publishing) first.

In OpenLit we address two kinds of openness: open distribution and open content.

On Thu, 02/22/2007 @ 03:32 hafoc posted his Lance Steele story Cold Boot which opens with this remark:

Introducing Lance Steele! For reasons which shall become obvious, I'm thinking of donating him to this community. I bet people could have a HOOT playing around with him.

Circular Logic

Lance Steele seems to have hit a nerve in some peoples' funny bones, so let's introduce the rest of the crew before this gets too out of hand. :D

Lieutenant Lance Steele of the Galactic Patrol scowled with grim determination. His airship’s engines didn’t behave like diesels, the weather was implausible, the sentence structure was a nightmare, and his characters wanted to pitch the obvious Russian spy overboard, abandon the expedition to the North Pole, and set course for Florida!

“Report,” he croaked.
