    Like the Romans of old, our readers range far and wide, on the WWW and in books, and this is where they talk about the stories (completed or not) they've just discovered whilst away from AwesomeDude. Not limited to stories involving sexual orientation, or those being recommended for the BONN list, even an excellent murder mystery, or superb cookbook should be mentioned.

  10. Writers' Workshop

    This is where we get down to the nuts and bolts of writing.
    We want this to be a lively discussion of the creative writing process as well as a place to share opinions, tips and suggestions. In keeping with the purpose of AwesomeDude, it will be a positive place where experienced authors can share with newer writers and the newer folks can bring fresh perspective to the discussion.

  11. Editor's Desk

    This is a meeting place for the unsung heroes of fiction, the editors who play such an important part in producing the stories you read here at AwesomeDude. A real fiction editor is much more than a proofreader and must be able to work with an author to bring out the best in his story. I hope you will use this space to share the 'tricks of your trade' with your peers and those who might be interested.

  12. AwesomeMuse Resource Center

    In ancient times the Musaeum, the Greek Μουσείον was the home of music and poetry, the temple of the muses -a museum.
    Rather than simply a museum in the sense that has developed since the Renaissance, it was an institution that brought together some of the best scholars of the Hellenistic world under the protection of the Muses. It also had rooms devoted to study and information - a Library.
    Here you will find all kinds of resources and references.
