After much difficulty with hardware, the George Gissing Discussion List is now back online and working well.
The list is for the discussion of the life and works of George Gissing [1857-1903], and hopes to bring together enthusiasts and academics alike to both further the cause of Gissing studies, and to encourage new readers to enjoy his works.
Announcements of events, and short Gissing related advertisements are permitted and encouraged, but excessive commercial postings will be moderated out. We would also encourage members to post a brief introduction on joining the list.
We expect the list to be relatively low traffic, and complimentary to your existing list subscriptions rather than replacing any of them. A digest delivery option is available on subscription.
For further information on subscribing: Gissing List Information.
For list archives: Gissing List Archives.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
