More about Gaslight
and its listmembers
Gaslight was conceived in 1993-jul to be a discussion list on the Internet. Its purpose
is to provide a different story each week for discussion, modeled on the Hounds of
the Internet discussion list about Sherlock Holmes. Unlike Hounds, however, Gaslight's
stories are not readily available to most listmembers, so they are prepared before reading as
electronic texts (etexts).
This site is to aid in distributing the etexts and to post any notable discussions which
occur on the mailing list.
