The Atlantean Publishing wiki exists to bring together information on the past, present and future of the press. As well as highlighting Atlantean's current activities, it gives information about the back catalogue — and also on upcoming projects and how writers, artists etc. can contribute to these.

What's here?Edit

This site aims to eventually catalogue information on the contents of everything the press has produced, with the idea that an interested reader — or the writers and artists themselves — can find out exactly what stories, poems, articles, artworks and so on have been published, by whom, in which publications and when, going all the way back to 1996. You can find entries here for publications (past and present), content (stories, poems, etc.) and contributors. You can also find calls for submissions, writers' and artists' guidelines and such like.

'Categories' and menus to help get aroundEdit

All pages belong to one or more 'categories', visible in the Categories section at the bottom of each page. You can use these to find related pages — for example, all stories for which there are presently pages will be in the Stories category, so, should you wish to see a list of other stories, all you need to do is click on this Category link. There is a hierarchy in which categories also belong to larger categories, so you can widen your search yet further. Some you might find particularly useful or interesting are:

  • Content — the master list for published material.
  • Contributors — people who have contributed to publications.
  • Publications — the master list for all our publications.
  • Terms — entries explaining various terms you will encounter on the wiki.
  • Trivia — those tantalising and illuminating tidbits that are scattered across the wiki.

You can also use the red/gold dropdown menu links at the top of each page to connect to commonly visited pages, while the 'core' information pages (such as those on submitting material, what's available, and this very page) are arranged in their own helpful subgroups, with menus on each such page linking to related ones.

'Trivia' on this siteEdit

There are numerous entries — either pages of their own, or more commonly on existing pages — for trivia scattered around the site, intended mainly to entertain the reader. These include things such as anniversaries, obscure publication details, characters and locations that have appeared in stories, locations associated with the press, and other miscellany.

Don't forget the linksEdit

Most pages include in-text blue links to other pages. Use these to find related information. For example, a story's entry will include links to its author page and the issue in which it was published. We realise that there are still a great number of 'redlinks' on this site at present, but hope over the coming months and years to gradually fill out the missing sections to create a wholly interlinked resource — this is a vast task, though, given the press had 15 years of history before this site was inaugurated, and it's a not insubstantial job just to keep up with cataloguing the new releases let alone the scores of old titles! So it's going to take a while...

Adding to this wikiEdit

Please bear in mind the above notes on this site's structure when contributing to the wiki, too.

Using information from this wikiEdit

Most information on this site can be used freely, where relevant. Extracts or examples of poetry and prose (fiction or non-fiction) remain copyrighted and their use elsewhere must be reasonable (such as for review purposes). Pictures of a general illustrative nature may be used elsewhere as per the Wikia terms. Actual artwork shown on the site remains copyrighted and should only be used elsewhere for a good reason (such as for review purposes).

As you will see on certain pages, there are cases of the same character or fictional location being used by more than one author, and it may be that you are inspired to make use of them yourself. In general, there is no objection to this, if you fulfill the following criteria:

  • Such use should be referential in nature or very brief (for instance, you could make a passing reference to Ken Longman or have him appear for a couple of lines of dialogue, but making him a primary character or even a major secondary character would require permission).
  • Such use should be respectful and appropriate — especially if you are referencing a real, live contributor. Obviously, there is some leeway for satirical purposes here, but using someone's creation in a way that they might find offensive is a bad idea.
  • Where possible the use should be noted on this wiki — even if the publication is elsewhere — and, if possible, the creator informed (a copy of the story would be nice, if possible).
  • No such use of previously-created properties can ever be construed as undermining the rights of the creator. Likewise, their use cannot be construed as undermining the rights of the author of the piece in which they are referenced. Such references exist as a bit of fun only.
  • Only stories by the creator, or so-designated by the creator, are in any sense 'official'.

If in any doubt regarding any of the above, please feel free to contact Atlantean via our details on the main page.
