Albion Releases Netiquette Quiz Applet

    We're very excited to launch our first Java applet. It's nifty and it's fun and it's a good way to brush on the rules of network etiquette -- take the Netiquette Quiz. This is the first of many to come. Enjoy.

Browse Blake Online

    One never knows how an Internet mailing list will turn out when you launch it. There are simply too many variables -- Will anyone sign up? Post? Break up into a ball of flame? Will there be so much list traffic that the mail server blows up? This summer, Albion's most popular service has been Blake Online, a mailing list devoted to the life and work of 19th-century poet William Blake. Launched into the academic vapors of the Internet in November 1993, the Blake list has hundreds of subscribers from around the world who discuss and debate everything from the meaning of the word "modern" to the minutae of Blake's illuminated poems. Find out how to subscribe or review the Blake Online archives.

The Millennium Shows - an online novel

    Albion is pleased to announce the World Wide Web edition of Philip Baruth's futuristic novel, The Millennium Shows.

Why wait three more years? Join the revelry now.
