National Significance

May I proudly quote a correspondence we here at Shadowed Realms central received from no less than the National Library of Australia:

“The National Library of Australia aims to build a comprehensive

collection of Australian publications to ensure that Australians have

access to their documentary heritage now and in the future. The Library

has traditionally collected items in print, but it is also committed to

preserving electronic publications of lasting cultural value.

PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive, was set up by the Library in 1996 to

enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online

Australian publications. Since then we have been identifying online

publications and archiving those that we consider have national

significance
.

We would like to include Shadowed Realms in the PANDORA Archive…”

While a notice will soon go up on the Shadowed Realms website, doesn’t it provide a warm, fuzzy feeling to know a story published in Shadowed Realms will last for eternity, to be archived for perpetuity, until civilisation is eventually overhauled by something more primal, chaotic, or apocalyptical?

We also pay the highest rate in Australia, and are comfortably nestled among the top tier of webzines throughout the world. All this after just one issue. We’re only looking UP from here.
